Blood Brothers experience for students

27th November 2017

Blood Brothers visit - November 2017On Wednesday last week (22 November 2017) a group of students from Queen Elizabeth’s had a wonderful opportunity to enhance their study of the play Blood Brothers as they went to experience a showing of this powerful production at the Theatre Royal in Nottingham.

Blood Brothers is a set text for the 47 students’ GCSE English Literature exam, so the chance to see Willy Russell’s famous play was both a great cultural experience and will support their exam success.

Mrs Willmot, executive assistant principal at Diverse Academies Learning Partnership, said; “We managed to secure funding for the trip ensuring that it was affordable for all students. The Henry Smith Charity supported these students attendance of the production by providing £795 of funding towards the trip. We are delighted that we were able to secure this donation that has given our students a memorable and important experience – it was hugely enjoyable and ended in an inevitable standing ovation.”

Our students were impeccably behaved and represented the academy superbly, with staff members Mrs Hill, Mr Miller and Mrs Willmot supporting the visit.
