Barnsley Academy’s Year 7 and 8 students plan to bring the house down when they stage their version of smash hit musical, ‘Matilda’ on the 12th and 13th December.
Based on the famous Roald Dahl Book and the Royal Shakespeare Company’s theatrical adaptation, Matilda tells the story of an extraordinary little girl with extraordinary powers and her amazing adventures, featuring such memorable characters as cruel headmistress Miss Trunchbull and the kind Miss Honey!
Last night (28th November) saw Barnsley Academy students perform with hundreds of their peers from across the country in a special concert at Manchester’s Royal Northern College of Music.
The corridors of Kendray Hospital are brighter, thanks to new artwork produced by students from Barnsley Academy.
The students were in the spotlight when Barnsley Academy staged its annual Celebration of Learning event.
Held at the academy’s Farm Road site on 22nd November, the event was aimed at former Year 11 students who took their exams in the summer.
