Former modern foreign language teacher, Mrs Cathy Hunt finally made the difficult decision to award the Senior cup to Flora Robson (11S) and Annabel Steele (11L) for their haunting performance of Macbeth’s soliloquy as he deliberates over killing King Duncan. The Junior cup was awarded to 8T for their rendition of Henry V’s rousing speech outside the walls of Agincourt as he motivates his troops to fight once more against the French.
