Drama Festival Success

15 Mar 2017

Witham pupils achieved a superb 19 first places at the annual Peterborough Drama Festival, alongside a further 27 second and third places.

This year, for the first time, Year 3 pupils were also involved and, like their seniors, they performed extremely well, notably Barney Halford who achieved first place in his verse speaking.

The confidence in performing and clarity of diction of the Witham pupils came through strongly across the course of the two days – well done to everybody involved and thank you to parents for their support.
