The AS Classics students enjoyed a terrific afternoon of Greek drama at The Globe Theatre, a rare chance to see all of Aeschylus’s masterpiece, the Oresteia, in one go. This is the only tragic trilogy that has come down to us from classical Athens – Athenians would have seen all three plays plus a fourth, a kind of burlesque called a satyr-play, on one day, and then turned up for the same dose of tragedy on the next two days. They clearly had an appetite for it. Striking costumes, intriguing melodies and choreography, powerful performances, blood and gore (a lot of it), obscenity (not too much, mind) but most of all timeless family rivalries and magnificent speeches kept our students riveted for the duration of the three hour show.
We have a varied selection of Extra-Curricular activities and clubs for the students to be involved in the term including a new Book Club, Football, Basketball, Table Tennis and many more.
The college is pleased to offer the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme to our students. This year we have had more students than ever signing up to the Gold Award and we are looking forward to a past student Shivani Shingardia receiving her Gold Award at a ceremony in November.
