Paddle Boat Project – Year 9


This term PaddleBoat Theatre Company have been working with our Year 9 pupils on a project based around Clare Hollingworth, the journalist who broke the story of the imminent invasion of Poland in1939

The PaddleBoat team have been leading weekly drama workshops with 24 of our Year 9 pupils; teaching drama skills, the art of devising through improvisation and creating short plays and stories. 

It has been a great experience for our students to work collaboratively with a professional theatre company developing not only their performance abilities but also their playwriting skills

The project’s finale took place end on the 22nd of March at The Phoenix where our talented Year 9’s proudly presented their work in a professional performance space to other school groups involved in the project.

Although it was quite daunting at times – performing beneath the light’s before an audience of hundreds, our Year 9’s all participated with confidence and true professionalism – We were incredibly proud of them all
