Macbeth Livestream

Macbeth LivestreamOn Thursday 26th April, 129 Year 10 students were given the opportunity to watch the latest RSC production of Macbeth as it was beamed into school as part of the National Schools’ Broadcast livestreaming event. Students brought pillows and snacks, and relaxed as the show was broadcast directly into the Drama Studio and Fairlie classrooms.

The performance stars Christopher Eccleston and Niamh Cusack, presenting a contemporary reimagining of the Scottish setting. Students enjoyed both the tension created by a large digital clock counting down, and the reimagined witches as little girls dressed in onesies.

Royal Society of ChemistryThis year we had six enthusiastic Year 13 students taking part in the competition, which involved them completing a two-hour written exam paper. The questions often posed much stimulate debate, and enthusiasm for chemistry – raising awareness of what the subject is all about. It provides a good opportunity to develop some of the skills required for study at university and beyond.
We are extremely pleased with the results that the students have achieved: Rebecca L achieved a Gold Award, and Charlotte O-P, Mahika D, Tokino T and Ellie E-W all achieved a Silver Award.

Well done and congratulations to them!
