Theatre Severn ‘Teechers’

Yr. 10 GCSE drama group enjoyed a rauscous rendition of ‘Teechers’ on Wednesday evening at Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury.

Blackeyed Theatre put on a great display of its highly-acclaimed production of John Godber’s classic comedy about life at a struggling ‘sink school’ for Mr Nixon, an unsuspecting new drama teacher. 

TEECHERS brings to life an array of terrifying teachers and hopeless pupils through the unique eyes of Salty, Gail and Hobby; three Year 11 students about to leave school for good.  Will Mr Nixon abandon his students for a green and pleasant Grammar school? Who puts the bounce in Miss Prime, the PE teacher? Will Mrs Parry ever find her Koko? And why does everyone smell of spring onions?

Crammed full of unforgettable characters, political left-hooks and razor-sharp comedy, TEECHERS is more relevant today than ever, a modern classic with something vital to say about education for the ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’.

Silver Award in the Skills Competition – STEM Schools Challenge

Congratulations to Elain and Tili from Year 7 who won the Silver award in the skills competition Wales final in the Stem Schools Challenge in Builth Wells this week. The competition was open to all schools in Wales. They had to design and make a balloon powered car to complete a 5 metre length. The total cost of the car had to be no more than £10 for all materials.

The car could be any size and shape and made of any materials, but all parts had to be made by the team, including wheels, axles, and body. The girls had 2 hrs to build their car, half an hour to test it and 1 hour to complete the challenge. Good teamwork was key to their success. A huge congratulations to them both.

Friday – the exams that were to be sat on Tuesday

Oherwydd cyflwr peryglus y safle a’r ffaith fod rhai ffyrdd yn dal yn beryglus, bydd yr ysgol ar gau eto yfory.

Due to the condition of the site and the fact that some roads are still dangerous, the school will be closed again tomorrow.
