Twelfth Night Trip

On Wednesday night, after a great day in the sun at Athletics Sports Day, our Cambridge English class of 2017 gathered at the Hamilton Gardens to see a live performance of Shakespeare’s comedy, Twelfth Night. This is one of our Cambridge English texts for this year.

Athletics Day
Wednesday's Athletics Day was a hugely successful and enjoyable day. Students participated in a range of athletics and house activities. Results from Athletics Day will be announced next week. We have posted a large number of photos on Facebook and Instagram.
