  • Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde theatre trip

    Y9 and 10 enjoyed a trip to the Theatre Royal yesterday

    Y9 and 10 students visited the Theatre Royal in Nottingham yesterday to see a production of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. This is one of our GCSE exam texts for English Literature and also gave drama GCSE students the opportunity to see a live piece of theatre. It was an interesting adaptation which certainly provided an alternative way of interpreting the text.

    We are so sorry th...

    ¡Destino Valencia!

    On Thursday 22nd March, thirty-two year 9 students and four members of staff will be setting off to the Valencian region of Spain.

We will be back on Tuesday evening full of stories and may be even a bit of a sun tan. ¡Hasta pronto!

    Elsewhere in the Spanish department at NFS, most s...
