We aim to broaden the horizons of our students and to personalise their learning. We are committed to utilising the latest technologies and learning and teaching strategies so that our students are skilled and confident citizens prepared for the opportunities and challenge of an increasingly complex world.
Hedingham School’s production of the top West End musical ‘We Will Rock You’, performed this week to hundreds of enthusiastic spectators, proved to be a huge success. Audiences were wowed by the fantastic combination of music, song, drama and dance, combined with spectacular lighting effects and eye- catching costumes. The cast, made up of 30 students ranging in age from 11 to 18 years old, put in months of work to perfect their performances of this ambitious choice of production. Another 20 students assisted backstage with the set , costumes, make up and lighting or were part of the live band made up of students studying for GCSE or A level Music at the school. The music played during the evening was of such a high standard that several parents asked if we had hired in musicians!
The excitement generated in the hall during the performances was palpable with audiences clapping, cheering and laughing their way through the highs and lows of the musical. The songs, all made famous by the band Queen, were well known by many audience members who sung along to their favourite melodies. The title track, ‘We Will Rock You’ brought the audience to its feet at the end of the performance, stamping, clapping and waving their arms in the air along with the actors.
