Shakespeare’s 400th Anniversary Week

Shakespeares 400th Anniversary Week

This year marks 400 years since the death of one of the greatest authors of all time, William Shakespeare.

To celebrate, staff and students of AGGS took part in a range of activities to celebrate the Bard’s life and work. From considering the rights and roles of Jacobean women in citizenship, quizzes in maths, where students debated whether the answer to the algebraic question was ‘2b or not 2b’, to translating titles in MfL, students considered Shakespeare’s lasting impact across the whole of the curriculum.

The week culminated with staff dressing up as some Shakespeare’s greatest known characters. The best dressed award almost certainly resulted in a tie between Mrs Crowson’s Cleopatra or Mr Harrison’s Bottom!

Thanks to all who took part in the fun and festivities!
