The news of their win was celebrated in assembly only last week and I managed to get a few of them together for a photo. The 1000 is going to subsidise a drama workshop and theatre trip for KS4 students during our Enrichment week in the summer term. Usually the girls would be in school off timetable doing activities that enrich their regular curriculum, but this year because of this money we will be able to take them to the Globe theatre for the day and they will have an experience which they might otherwise not have had!
