On Tuesday 28th January 27 pupils from years 7-10 got to see Matilda the Musical (although for many it was their second visit).

There was palpable excitement as the girls took their seats which afforded an excellent view of the stage, which had been designed with many colourful building blocks of letters spelling out Matilda.

The first act passed incredibly quickly and soon the girls were talking about their favourite bits in the interval while enjoying an ice cream refreshment. The finale was thrilling and the girls rose from their seats to give a standing ovation to the cast. A late night for some of the younger members of the group but a very worthwhile one.
