More than 300 pupils from Allenbourn Middle School battled wind and rain to visit Queen Elizabeth’s School recently, for a fabulous performance of ‘We Will Rock You’. The whole of years 6 & 7 were invited to their local upper school for this bi-annual treat, which was a real triumph.
Even before the curtain went up, there was enormous excitement and anticipation in the audience. For many of the Allenbourn students, this was the first time they had visited the new QE school, and they were visibly and audibly impressed by the building and the facilities. The talent on show was outstanding – singers, dancers, musicians, technicians and designers all combining to produce a really memorable production.
Many of the cast are combining the show with exam work, but former AMS students Zoe, Evie and Emily all agreed the extra work was well worth it. “It has taken over our lives for the last few months,” they said, “but it has been such a special experience, one we will never forget.”
