Another week of amazing musical and dramatic performances at Sandbach School!

Another week of amazing musical and dramatic performances at Sandbach School! The Big Band played for 2 nights with Matt Ford (who had performed earlier in the week at the Royal Albert Hall!).

Armistice

Last week’s Armistice Day assembly was a very dignified and fitting tribute – students were exemplary in the manner in which they conducted themselves. The 100 year commemoration of the start of the war was poignantly remembered with an extraordinary and powerful drama and poetry production ‘the Lost Voices of WW1.’ My thanks to John […]

To cut to the chase, this is quite simply one of the very best British musicals that I have seen. Lee Hall’s musical masterpiece brilliantly combines comedy with the harsh realities and struggles of families during the 1984-1985 miners’ strike, leaving the audience laughing one moment and then on the verge of tears in the […]
