Year 12 A-level English and Drama group enhance learning on latest trip

English and Drama pupils at Rydal Penrhos got the opportunity to enhance their learning thanks to a special trip.

The Year 12 A-level group travelled to the Lowry Theatre in Salford on Saturday, April 14, where they took in Terry Rattigan’s iconic play The Winslow Boy.

The story revolves around young cadet Ronnie Winslow, who was expelled from the Royal Navy College for stealing a five-shilling postal order, seeing his entire family pulled apart by the repercussions of this charge.

Set against the values of 1910 Edwardian London, the Winslow family fight to clear his name or face social ostracism as the case becomes a national scandal and is based on real-life events.

This is the latest in a series of educational trips put on by the department throughout the academic year, which have been implemented with a view to enhancing the experience of each pupil and gain some additional knowledge outside of the classroom in the lead-up to a crucial stage of their development.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “We are indebted to English and Drama head Mrs Crimes and the rest of her dedicated staff for putting on these trips, which gives each pupil the perfect chance to learn from some industry leaders in a relaxed environment.

“This gives them the best possible chance of succeeding in terms of adding to Rydal Penrhos’ rich history of exceptional examination results in both subjects.”
