Actors in 'The Tempest' Schools edition acting on stage

Talented Primary School pupils dazzled family and friends in their performance of ‘The Tempest’. Ghyll Royd pupils in Forms 3-6 performed the Shakespearean classic to a packed Sports Hall on Wednesday 28th March 2018. For some, this was their very first experience of acting on stage, and for Form 6 this is their last Ghyll Royd performance before heading to Secondary School in September.

Well done to all of the Key Stage Two cast! Your acting, performance and singing was brilliant, and had the audience captivated by another brilliant Ghyll Royd production! Thank you to Key Stage Two Staff and special thanks to the brilliant Mrs Coultas, our Specialist Music Teacher, for putting on a phenomenal show, a fabulous end to the Spring term!
