In November, some of the 5th and 6th form boys took part in a thrilling performance called “Beowulf” and luckily I was able to watch this performance. All the boys who were not performing in the play were eager to watch it after hearing mysterious noises coming from Centenary Hall all the time, and the cast did not disappoint. We all knew we were in for a treat when we walked into a dark room full of smoke. The performance was thrilling and definitely lived up to the burden of performing a play greater than “Guys and Dolls”. The performance was brilliant and everybody enjoyed it. You could see the hard work and dedication devoted to the play from all boys involved in it. The make-up and acting involved in the performance was brilliant and realistic and it was a performance that I will never forget. I would like to congratulate all the boys and staff involved in the play for creating an entertaining performance that me and many others will never forget. By W Conyers

It was a thrilling yet nerve-wracking time being in Beowulf. I loved watching the play get better with each practice. The play helped me develop my acting greatly as I had a role not similar to anything I had had been in before. Overall it was a great production and was fantastic to be in. As well as a great learning experience. By F Catherwood Smith (Fate)
