As part of the course, we are hoping to take students to see the Watermill Theatre production of Macbeth at the Theatre Royal in Norwich. The purpose of this visit is to enhance students’ learning and understanding of a key GCSE text. Students will be taken by coach to the Theatre Royal in Norwich where they will watch the performance.
Students participating in the visit will leave school at 1.15pm and return at 6.00pm. Students will need to wear school uniform. All students should be able to have lunch at school before we leave.
