English department take girls to watch 'A Christmas Carol'

Just after Christmas, the English Department took a group of enthusiastic Year 10 and 11 pupils to watch 'A Christmas Carol' at Bolton's Octagon Theatre. 

It was an energetic and vibrant performance that provided a very interesting take on Dickens' original text, and pupils particularly enjoyed discussing their differing interpretations of the portrayal of the infamous character of Scrooge. 

Year 11 found it fascinating to watch such a different adaptation of a text that they already know so well, while Year 10 now can't wait to study Dickens' novel!
