Year 8 ‘A Christmas Carol’ Theatre Trip Opportunity (January 2024)

Three students are seen sitting down on a bench outdoors on the academy grounds, conversing with one another.

Dear Parents/Carers,

An exciting opportunity has arisen for our Year 8 cohort to see the production of ‘A Christmas Carol’ on Tuesday 2nd January 2024 at The Old Vic Theatre. The MYP encourages students to see a range of live theatrical performances so that they can confidently analyse playscripts and live theatre productions. ‘A Christmas Carol’ is studied by Year 8 across Module Two, therefore this is an exciting opportunity for our students to enrich their learning and see the text studied in school performed live on stage.

We will travel to the theatre by train, leaving Kidbrooke Station at 5:30pm to Waterloo East Station where we will then walk to the theatre. Students should therefore be dropped off at this location for this time. The performance begins promptly at 7pm and lasts approximately 2 hours including a 20 minute interval. We anticipate returning to Kidbrooke Station at approximately 9:45pm. Given the time, we ask that students do not make their own way home, but are collected from Kidbrooke Station by parents/carers at this time.

To secure a place for your child on this trip, a full payment of £16.17 should be made, via ParentPay, before Tuesday 10th October 2023. This price includes the performance and train travel to and from the theatre. If, however, your child would like to bring some additional money to purchase a snack/beverage during the interval, please ensure they have this with them on the day. Tickets will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Yours faithfully,

Ms K Thompson
Coordinator of Learning – English
