Aylward Academy took part in the annual Shakespeare for Schools Festival flagship project and the world’s largest youth drama festival in November 2018.

Aylward Academy’s GCSE Drama student’s used the unique power of performance to develop self-esteem, articulacy, literacy and teamwork; skills that transform lives. In November, Aylward Academy’s cast took to performing Macbeth Shakespeare on a professional stage at the Arts Depot. Not only, did they dazzle the audience with their creative, physical ensemble interpretation of Macbeth and they can have gained the confidence, aspiring others to 'find their remarkable'.
