For Anti-Bullying Week, selected year 8 students participated in a drama workshop, exploring the effects of bullying.They later delivered their work to the rest of year 8 in a performance known as Forum Theatre. In this kind of performance, any audience member can take the part of a chosen actor and change the outcome of the piece. This gave a fantastic opportunity to allow students to rethink the role of the bystander and explore why some pupils decide to ignore or even join in with this devastating behaviour. All year 8 students will now have the chance to write a piece of creative writing based on bullying and it's negative effects.

Well done to all of those involved.
