Year 10 & 11 Theatre Trip

We took 57 year 10 and 11 drama students on an educational theatre trip to a West End show “The ocean at the end of the lane”. The Trip was organised by Mr Deamer (Head of the Department for Drama) and was open to all GCSE drama students to prepare them for their ‘Live Theatre’ exam question in their upcoming GCSE exams.

The trip was a true success and students thoroughly enjoyed going into London and seeing the big city and most importantly the show itself. They travelled there by coach, which the teachers turned into an impromptu tour bus, with Miss E Muston (History teacher) taking to the mic and presenting a verbal bus tour of the city of London, as they past large monuments or important moments in history. Highlights included: Tower bridge, The tower of London, passing the streets where the great fire of London happened in 1666, The National Theatre, The London eye, The Houses of Parliament and then moving along the Thames up to Trafalgar Square before stopping for a bite to eat in Charing Cross area.

Then it was time for the student and faculty to take a nice 5-minute stroll to the Noel Coward Theatre where they attended the matinee show of “The ocean at the end of the lane”. The show was full of puppetry, physical theatre, lights and pyrographic’s and fantastic actors of course - very much a multi-sensory experience and highly engaging for all. The students were so immersed you could hear a pin drop. The excitement and passion of conversations on the return journey back to Trinity was truly amazing and I am sure this experience will have a positive impact on their learning and writing within their exams. We’d like to thank both students and staff for such an amazing trip!
