Year 9 Blood Brothers Theatre Trip Opportunity

Dear Parents / Carers,

An exciting cross curricular opportunity has arisen for our Year 9 cohort to see the production of ‘Blood Brothers’ on Wednesday 22nd February 2023 at Richmond Theatre. The MYP encourages students to see a range of live theatrical performances so that they can confidently analyse playscripts and live theatre productions. Blood Brothers was studied by Year 9 across Module Two, therefore this is an exciting opportunity for our students to enrich their learning and see the performance studied in school delivered live on stage.   

We will travel to the theatre by coach, leaving the Academy at 12.00 pm.  The performance begins promptly at 2.30 pm and lasts approximately 2 hours 45 minutes, including an interval.  Please ensure your child has lunch with them on this date, as we will be leaving the Academy before their lunchtime.  A packed lunch will be provided if your child is in receipt of free school meals.   We anticipate returning to The Halley Academy, by coach, at approximately 7.00 pm.

To secure a place for your child on this trip, a full payment of £25 should be made, via ParentPay, before Monday 13th February 2023. A payment plan is also possible, should you wish to pay for the trip weekly.  This price includes the performance and coach 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. 

In addition to the payment above, please complete this Google Form, indicating if your child will be collected from the Academy or whether you are happy for them to travel home independently.


Yours faithfully

Ms K Thompson
