One thought on “The Great Budworth Bulletin

  1. Richard Pollock

    One of the smallest independent schools in the country, Cransley School, has won a prestigious national drama competition for their performance of Romeo and Juliet.

    Cransley’s Year 7 class revived its Junior School production of the famous tragedy to enter the Independent Schools Association 2017 Drama Festival, winning the Judge’s Award for “the high standard of appreciation and speaking of Shakespeare’s verse”.

    The School, situated in Belmont Hall, near Great Budworth, collect their award next month in London.

    The class’s English teacher last year, and now Headmaster, Richard Pollock, knew they had created something rather special.

    “It was clear as we began to study Romeo and Juliet, that the pupils were fascinated by Shakespeare’s text, and it was a delight to watch the sensitivity, humour, subtlety and deep emotion that our astonishing pupils were able to convey.”

    He added that children are at the perfect age to learn and appreciate the power of language, by acting Shakespeare and Dickens, at a time when, sadly the National Curriculum becomes so narrow and focussed on testing.

    “Our young people will take their influence from those they encounter in everyday life – parents foremost, siblings, friends, teachers and of course, those prominent in modern media.

    “At Cransley, we add the influence of these complex and fascinating fictional characters – through the staging of such productions, by the promotion of reading, and through our own personal passions as teachers. It is right that we study these heroes and heroines critically to mould and define and justify our own reactions to life’s highs and lows.”

    The group plan to restage the play at Cransley before the summer and invite local primary schools to watch and chat to the young actors about their learning, with the aim of inspiring more young children to enjoy Shakespeare. Any interested schools should contact [email protected].
