The Langtree School production of West Side Story closed to a standing ovation and rapturous applause on Wednesday 5th March after a sell out 3 night run. The musical production was produced by Gill Pimm, Head of Drama and Maureen Idowu, Director of Music, choreographed by Deirdre Bryson and Charlotte Fosker and was one of the most challenging and ambitious productions ever staged at Langtree School involving over 60 students from Years 7-10. Not only did the lead actors sing all of the original songs from the show, but the music was performed live by an orchestra of Langtree students and music staff. Other students from Langtree contributed to the stage management and technical teams which ensured the show ran so smoothly on every performance.
Dr John Methven, Associate Professor in Atmospheric Dynamics, Department of Meteorology, Reading University will be talking about the science of high impact weather, a very topical subject following our winter of unprecedented storms.

A number of Year 11 students were today invited to the library to allow senior staff to take the opportunity to congratulate them in particular on the quality of their predicted grades. These indicate that students are likely to achieve some very creditable results; and of course staff expect the students to continue to work hard over the next few months in preparation for the summer GCSE examinations. Overall the predicted grades suggest we may be in for a record performance as far as the school is concerned.
Keep up the good work Year 11!
