Pupils tread the boards at opera!


14 May 2015

On Monday 11th May 2015, St Nicholas pupils supported the English Touring Opera in their performance of La Boheme.

The children got to perform on the stage at the Grand Theatre in Blackpool and loved every minute of it despite it being SATs week!

A retired headteacher, Phil Harrison, who was in the audience contacted the school to say:

"Congratulations on the wonderful performance of your pupils at The Grand last night. They were an absolute credit to you, your school and their parents. As a retired primary school HT of 25 years in Barnsley I am delighted that you have obviously such a strong belief in the performing arts that you did not allow this week's SATs to get in the way of such a wonderful opportunity to widen your pupils' experience.
