On the 8th of June a team of staff led by Miss Parkes took 107 students from Year 7 and Year 8 to Manchester Opera House to watch the award winning performance of ‘Gangsta Granny’. The play is adapted from the hugely acclaimed novel by David Walliams and the trip was extremely popular, with all spaces being filled in a matter of hours!
The theatre was full with school trips and our students from Batley Grammar School represented us perfectly, with polite behaviour and enthusiasm for the performance. This trip provided students with the chance to observe live theatre first hand and watch professional actors implementing the skills they practice every Drama lesson. The play was full of silly jokes and ridiculous characters; the ideal relief for a rainy Thursday morning!
Especial thanks to Mr Batley, Miss Wilson, Mrs Graham and Mrs Sadiq for their help on the day, it was a fun day for all involved and was a great success!
