Sixth Form Performing Arts students put on William Shakespeare’s ‘Titus Andronicus’ as part of their Sixth Form course and played to an enthusiastic audience of students and parents.
The play is set during the latter days of the Roman Empire and tells the fictional story of Titus, a general in the Roman army, who is engaged in a cycle of revenge with Tamora, Queen of the Goths. It is Shakespeare’s bloodiest and most violent work and was hence a major challenge for the students to deliver on.
Lottie Hearn, Assistant Headteacher, said: “The Performing Arts course is very successful and the nature of ‘Titus Andronicus’ typifies the high expectations and high standards of teachers and students on the course. The performance was very successful and will certainly support high grades and university applications in the future.”
