Senior Prefect Team - 04/07/2023

Senior Prefect Team – Head Boy & Head Girl – 2023-24
I would like to give thanks to our 2022/23 Head Boy, Ben F, and his Deputy, Daniel M, and to Head Girl, Niamh L, and her Deputy, Jennifer C. Thanks also go to the wider Senior Prefect Team for their outstanding contribution and commitment to the school this year, and we wish them all the very best for their futures.
In terms of appointing our new Head and Deputy Head Boys and Girls, it has been incredibly difficult to decide upon this year, due to the quality and strength of the shortlisted applicants. I am delighted to inform you however, that Gwen F has been appointed to the role of Head Girl, and Sam H to the role of Head Boy for 2023/24. Gwen and Sam will be very ably supported in their roles by Mathilda W-O’N as Deputy Head Girl, and Max B as Deputy Head Boy. The Head and Deputy Head Prefects will also be ably supported by Connie G, Hannah H, Phoebe A, Eleanor S, Leah P, Katie W, Erin-Lily T, Jai X, Henry T, Mathew M, and Lewis T as the first of our Senior Prefects. We are also currently in the process of finalising the remainder of the Senior Prefects, as well as the wider Prefect Team, in advance of them all beginning in their roles in September.
I would like to thank our outgoing team for their great commitment this year, and also congratulate the first of our newly appointed Senior Prefect Team members, and wish them well in their new leadership roles which I am confident that they will be hugely successful with.

Stockport School can’t wait to hear how it all comes together in the final concert on 28th March and look forward to welcoming in the Chamber Orchestra along with St George’s CE Primary School and Dial Park Primary.

Drama - 12/11/2019

Shakespeare Schools Festival 2019

Our hard working Y10s performed their version of Macbeth in the Shakespeare Schools Festival recently. The setting was a post-apocalyptic, post destructive climate change future, where society is rebuilding. UV paint, glow sticks, oil drums and gas masks helped to create the atmosphere, yet the imaginative and highly expressive acting really stole the show.
We are very grateful to our Y11 student directors Harley and Corin, and our performance tech managers Mia and Max, for creating the professional touches and modelling superb leadership.
The performance took place at the Z-Arts Theatre in Manchester, with 4 whole school assembly performances to Y7, 9, 10 and 11.
Bravo to all,  you were amazing!
Mrs Stone.

Drama - 03/12/2019

Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Simon Stephens (playwright, ex-Stockport School student) and the National Theatre brought The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time to Stockport School on December 3rd and performed to 200 students.  It was an emotional occasion for Simon and us all to be performing the play in the school he came to. He was greeted by two of his very special ex-teachers Colin Mail and Mrs O’Brien (Miss Williams) and Paul Adeyefa, our ex-student who did interviews with Simon in the 2000s for his play Punk Rock and now has his own acting career (Good Omens, National Theatre Midsummer Night’s Dream to name a few). The show was an astounding portrayal of a young man’s thrilling journey of overcoming his obstacles and learning how to achieve his potential, solving many mysteries along the way.  The students were absolutely bowled over by the show with comments like “amazing, I enjoyed it so much!” being quoted on exit from the theatre.

The theatre itself was a surprising venue; as the show is set in the round, with the audience seated around the outside, a large space was required. It was originally planned for the Lake Street Gym, but the blackout material wouldn’t stick to the windows, so a last minute change of venue was required! The PE staff kindly donated the sports hall for the day and it was transformed into an immersive space with high tech lighting, sound and setting for the students to enjoy. The show featured physically demanding performances from all the actors, as much physical theatre, change of pace and movement was used throughout. The ensemble were highly cohesive and their control was impeccable throughout. An absolute joy to watch. Special mention must go to the actor playing Christopher (Cayvan Coates) who spent 90 minutes on stage in the most intensely emotional moments that demanded such commitment and focus; what an incredible achievement.

Simon and the cast shared their time and knowledge with a post-show Q+A, which allowed many ideas to be considred. Our students were truly inspired by the arts after seeing this show and spending time in the company of the wonderful theatre-makers. Our final, extra treat was to have not one, but two masterclasses! Simon spoke with 17 year 10/11s and inspired them with powerful messages about his play Punk Rock (which 4 students are doing for GCSE), new approaches to characters, being true, understanding deeply and most of all the importance of being a good person! Cayvan Coates and the Tour Director Anna Marsland did a masterclass with two students who are going to play Christopher in their own GCSE Drama exam after Christmas. – what a wonderful experience for Nate and Frank!

Thank you so much Simon, all the National Theatre staff and to Stockport School staff and students. It was an unforgettable day and you have absolutely made your mark on our students’ lives! Thank you for inspiring curiosity, imagination, empathy and human connection!
