Ark All Saints Academy performs at 11 Downing Street

Last week, Ark All Saints Academy was chosen out of 12,000 schools in the Shakespeare School's Festival to perform at a Downing Street reception. 6 of our scholars performed extracts from their production of 'Macbeth' to a distinguished audience including Nicky Morgan, the Education Secretary.

First on stage were Amelia, Shannen and Davia as the Witches, who hissed and scowled their way through the audience and onto the stage.

They were followed by George as Macbeth and Patrick as Banquo who are told their futures by the Witches.

Later in the event Fanta took to the stage to perform a monologue of Lady Macbeth.

As the only scholar asked to perform a monologue some may have been daunted but Fanta showed what a true star in the making she was by portraying a character racked with guilt by interacting with the audience throughout her speech. 

Amelia, Shannen, Davia, George, Patrick and Fantas performed like pros and showed exceptional confidence and natural acting ability. The scholars then had the chance to mingle and talk with the guests after their performance.

The scholars represented the Academy fantastically, and had an experience that they won't soon forget.
