War Horse theatre trip

War Horse theatre trip a great success - read the students' reviews

On Thursday 16th May, fifty Key Stage 3 and 4 students attended the New London Theatre on Drury Lane to see the award winning production of War Horse. The play is based on the novel by Michael Morpurgo and is performed in association with the Handspring Puppet Company.  After a full day at school students attended the theatre in high spirits and were not disappointed by an exceptionally creative and inspiring performance.

Mr O’Keeffe, who organised the trip, said: “The performance was awe-inspiringly amazing; the show was two and a half hours of spectacular entertainment, from beginning to end. It was an absolute pleasure to be accompanied by such well-mannered, enthusiastic Heston students. It was clear that every student thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated the experience!”
