The English-Speaking Union Performing Shakespeare Competition 2022

Congratulations to our talented students from Y8 and Y9 who made it to the North East Regional Finals of this year’s ESU performing Shakespeare competition which was recently held at Durham High School. This is a nationwide competition for years 7, 8 and 9 students who perform either a monologue or duologue from a Shakespeare play.

Sophie Fox and Sophia Burns, Y8, performed their pieces beautifully. The girls gave a comic performance as the Nurse and Juliet from Romeo and Juliet and received some excellent feedback – including praise from the judges for the way they showed the characters’ relationship.

Tom Conlan, Y9, gave an inspiring performance of the St Crispian’s Day speech from Henry V and was thrilled to be given the Highly Commended certificate which is awarded to the second placed student. The judges were incredibly impressed with his piece.

The judges commented on the very high standard of all performances in this regional final, so our students have much to be proud of.
