For the Autumn term Academy Day, 30 students and three members of staff had the pleasure of making their way up to London to see The Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre. After climbing what seemed like an endless staircase to find our seats and armed with enough snacks to last a week, we were ready to see the show!

We were captivated right from the very first moment as a whole host of near life-size animals and birds took over the stage, the air and the aisles in the audience to transport us to Pride Rock in the African Savannah.

The performers were amazing as they brought the classic Disney film to life; their singing blew us away and the set was breath-taking! So much so that you could hear the audible gasps from our students as they couldn’t believe what they were seeing! It was an incredible show, both students and staff thoroughly enjoyed it and were raving about it all the way home!

Our students represented us perfectly and were the best-behaved school there! A thoroughly enjoyable day and we can’t wait until the next show!
