One of the great traditions at Hackthorn School is the annual visit from the Young Shakespeare company. They are a fantastic group who put on a completely interactive performance of a different one of ‘The Bard’s’ works for our children each time they visit. It is also a great source of pride for us that they say that our school is one of their favourite places to visit because our pupils are so attentive and keen to take part.
This year’s performance was of Macbeth which was both exciting and scary in places! Everyone felt that they had really got to grips with the play and are already looking forward to next time – if you spend your whole primary education with us you will have experienced at least 4 Shakespeare plays by the time you reach secondary school!
