DRAMA students took tips from the experts when they participated in workshops and even performed their version of a play for stars of the stage.
The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) visited Cardinal Wiseman School on Monday in the final part of an eight-week project. This visit was to give the 14- and 15-year-olds lessons on developing characters' emotions.
They then performed Twelfth Night for the lucky pupils at their school in Greenford Road, Greenford. The youngsters had impressed with their own 20-minute version of the play, along with three other schools, at the RSC's studios in Clapham last Wednesday.
Head of drama Noreen BoylanVaughan said: "Shakespeare can be very scary for students but once they conquer it they feel they can tackle anything.It's really important for students to be able to watch and perform Shakespeare rather than just study it behind a desk."
