1st November 2018

Dear Parent / Guardian On Thursday 15th November, the History department has organised a trip for Year 8 students to see the matinee performance of ‘Private Peaceful’ at the Theatre Royal Winchester. The play is based on the novel of the same name, written by Michael Morpurgo, the Children’s Laureate. It is set during the First World War and was is the winner of the ‘Blue Peter Book of the Year’. His inspiration came from a visit to Ypres where he was shocked to discover how many young soldiers were court-martialled and shot for cowardice during the First World War. This is extremely relevant as on the 11th of November we will be commemorating the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1. Students will be leaving school at 12.30pm and returning to Winton, traffic willing at around 3.45pm. Tickets are available at £22.00 per student to include travel – the number of tickets is limited. If you would like your child to be part of this trip, please complete the consent form below and return to the school with payment by Friday 9th November. Yours sincerely
