Gripping the crowd throughout three fast-moving fully-costumed productions to audiences in excess of 340, the run involved a cast from all seven year groups in the senior school.

In the lead roles were Benjamin York as Macbeth and Joanna Slipper as Lady Macbeth.

Alison Clayton, director and English teacher, said: “Arguably the most theatrical of Shakespeare’s tragedies, ‘Macbeth’ has been an ambitious project.

“The pupils have not only risen to the challenge, but have far surpassed my expectations once again.
