We received this message from a member of the audience late on Wednesday evening and were delighted to hear that our children didn't let us down:
A group of your pupils went to see the Sword in the Stone at the New Wolsey this afternoon.
We were sitting in the row immediately in front of the block of seats you had booked and I have to admit that we were rather taken aback when we realised that there were going to be so many children directly behind us.
However, their behaviour was excellent and I was very impressed by it. They were very good ambassadors for your school. The adults with them made sure that their excitement at being there didn't disrupt things for everyone else. Their enthusiasm and enjoyment was contagious - somebody sitting in front of me said that it was more fun than the evening performances because the children were so involved.
Also, their shouting was excellent!It is good to know that through all this jolity, the children maintained exemplary behaviour
