Called Finch's Tale the story was written by the director, Miss Harris, and the cast. It was a dark tale about an orphaned boy named Finch who embarks on a fantastical journey with his best friend Tabitha to search for hope and happiness.

Full of dance, theatre and music, the production involved over 100 students who created moments of humour, horror and mystery in a scary but enchanting event.

The main characters were brilliantly performed by Finlay Reid, Y10 and Emily Gibson, Y11.

Their adventure was full of magical and strange characters that either helped or hindered the young pair, from Kings and Queens to monsters and pirates.
