Learners at R.E.A.L. experienced the magic of live theatre as they watched “An Inspector Calls” on stage.

The play was performed at Nottingham’s Theatre Royal and learners from Concorde House, Woodhouse Road and the City Hub went along.

Victoria Gardener, Deputy Headteacher said: “It was a fantastic performance! The learners thoroughly enjoyed the play and we were all sitting on the edge of our seats.”

Learners had studied “An Inspector Calls” as part of their English Language curriculum, but watching the play live sparked further questions and theories after it finished.

Victoria said: Taking young people to the theatre has lots of benefits from improving literacy and social skills, to inspiring a love of the arts and live performances. 

It also supports learning in a different environment, allowing young people to actually experience the books they are studying.”
