Year 13 performed their last exam piece at Trinity this week, an adaptation of Medea set in Aspley. The teacher-directed extract was influenced by Gogglebox and reality TV shows and was directed by Miss White. This Greek tragedy was adapted into a comedy with extremely funny moments enjoyed by a Covid restricted audience of their peers from their year group bubble.
Well done to Year 13 and good luck for the future. You have been a pleasure to teach over the years and will be missed.
