Basking in the glow of Les Misérables

Basking in the glow of Les Misérables

With apologies to my regular blog followers (there are at least three of you!) for my chronic lack of communication over recent days; I have been in Yorkshire conducting an ISI Educational Quality inspection, was then captivated by our school production of Les Misérables and then spent most of the weekend reading and writing comments on reports.

I have to admit that I am still basking in the glow created by the most superb production of Les Misérables; it was, without a doubt, one of the very best school productions I have ever seen. At many points throughout the performances, the students were indistinguishable from West End professionals. What an amazing experience they must have had working to such a high level and creating two evenings of entertainment that will be talked about for many years to come.

After my week in Yorkshire and reflecting on the new style ISI inspection which focuses on Pupil Achievement and Personal Development, I could not help but feel that the Rossall students excelled themselves on both counts in Les Misérables – not only had they reached the highest standard of dramatic and musical achievement, but they had honed a wide array of personal development skills including teamwork, problem-solving, collaboration and perseverance. Whether on or off the stage, everyone involved had been on a brilliant experiential learning journey.

“Bravo et Merci mille fois” to everyone involved.
