Taunton and Somerset Festival SuccessAs the number of Speech & Drama students increases in TS so too does the number of entrants we send to the Taunton and Somerset Festival. This year we entered 6 of the senior speech & drama classes and were absolutely thrilled to win 5 out of the 6, particularly as the standard this year was the highest I have seen since being involved with it. All of our TS students performed brilliantly and represented the school with real pride. The following students were all placed first in their classes, scoring some of the highest marks in the whole Festival. Well done!
William Coates Winner of Verse Speaking Year 11
Ed Tucker & Alex Raikes Winners of Duo Acting Years 10/11
Holli Downham & Sam Dunn Winners of Duo Acting 6th Form
Heidi Parsons Winner of Shakespeare Acting 6th Form
Nicholas Brown Winner of Prepared Reading Years 8/9
