The College has marked World Book Day 2020 in style, with a visit to Theatre Royal Plymouth for all of Years 10 and 11 and a specially-prepared lesson for Years 7, 8 and 9.

Our Year 10 and 11 students attended a matinee performance of the National Theatre’s acclaimed production of JB Priestley’s classic thriller, An Inspector Calls. It is a multi-award winning show which has been seen by more than four million people worldwide.

Importantly, this production uses the same text of the play that the students are studying for their GCSE exams. Ms Henderson said: “We were delighted to be able to take so many students on this trip. It is brilliantly timed to coincide with Year 11's exam preparation and Year 10 are currently studying it too.

“It is a fabulous production and really emphasises the main messages of the play. It has been quite a challenge to organise but is definitely worth it!” 

At the same time, students in Years 7,8 and 9 had a lesson which was prepared for World Book Day by our Literacy Co-ordinator, Ms Ekpoffiong.
