This year’s production of Grease was an incredible success. Here are some photographs.


The Sound of Musicals – the senior musical


“Another op’nin, another show!” This year’s senior musical saw us pay tribute to the New Hall, which has been Twycross’ main performance space for the last 40 years, by performing a variety of songs from some of the most celebrated musicals since 1935 – and providing a history lesson at the same time! There were… Continue reading The Sound of Musicals – the senior musical.

This ranged from tap-dancers to actors through to singers and instrumentalists. All the pupils who took part in… Continue reading Summer Concert.

Cinderella & Rockerfella


Forms 3X and 3Y had a marvellous time at the end of term recreating the tale of Cinderella on stage.  The town-crier, Buttons and the cat took their expected places in the story, but the arrival of rock-star Rockerfella dressed head-to-toe in designer leather was less expected.  Tired of touring with his band and dealing… Continue reading Cinderella & Rockerfella.
