Of Mice and Men Cineworld Visit by Our Literacy Leaders

Last Thursday 13 Year 11 Literacy Leaders watched the acclaimed Broadway theatre performance of John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men at Cineworld, St.Helens

The production, starring James Franco as George and Chris O'Dowd as Lennie, was screened live from New York to cinemas around the world.

The Year Eleven students were rewarded by the school because of their hard work acting as mentors to a cohort of Year Seven students. They have been helping the younger students with their reading during morning registration in school.

Of Mice and Men is a key text for Year Eleven, as it features in both English Language and English Literature GCSE exams this year. One of the group, Christian Royle, described the performance as "amazing."
