Parents, pupils and governors recently attended the opening of a new amphitheatre in the grounds of Hampshire Collegiate School.
The amphitheatre was officially opened and named ‘The Orchard Theatre', by Ms Charlotte Rendle-Short, Deputy Chief Executive of United Church Schools Trust.
After cream teas, served in the afternoon sunshine, the audience enjoyed music and drama performances by pupils, in a relaxed, and informal setting.
The amphitheatre will be enjoyed by pupils of all ages across the Prep School for drama, music and other lessons such as science. It is already well used each break time, where it has become a quiet place to sit and read, play chess or have a chat. For younger pupils it has become a castle, a fortress, a ship; imaginations have run wild!
Prep School head teacher, Mrs Teresa Rogers said: "We are delighted to witness the official opening of the amphitheatre and to see the number of different uses it has already been put to, and the range of age groups that are enjoying using it."
