The 39 Steps

This year's school production was The 39 Steps, written by Patrick Barlow, based on John Buchan's ground-breaking novel and Alfred Hitchcock's iconic movie.

London, 1935, RIchard Hannay is bored with life... until he meets a mysterious woman called Annabella Smchmit who turns out to be a spy! Boredom gives way to suspense - peppered expertly with humour - as an innocent man is mistakenly accused of a crime and must clear his name. Hannay soon discovers a reason to live, to love and, above all, look after each other and our world.

With shootings, train chases, plane crashes, heavies in fast cars, villains with missing fingers and, of course, a love story, this laugh-a-minute thrill ride has something for everyone.

This year the production was open to Year 10 and 11 students who auditioned for either acting or backstage roles.

Producing, directing and performing such a challenging piece of work was made particularly tricky given the pandemic and restrictions we found ourselves under. The original play was performed by just four actors - playing over 150 characters! At King's we rose to the challenge, showing great enthusiasm and perseverance to perform it with just 11 actors and five backstage crew. All of them were fantastic and despite yet another setback with storm Eunice delaying the performance, we overcame and were able to put on the show, performing in school to students and in the evening to parent and friends. It was hit, with lots of laughter and wonderful feedback for the entire cast and crew. Well done!

"Anyone considering The King’s School for their children, will be making the best decision they have ever made for their academic, spiritual, emotional and social growth. Both my children attended the school and I have no doubt that the environment and staff played a key role in their development to encounter and thrive in the world."

Mrs Pole

"My son joined The King’s School in Year 2. The teachers, right from the start, identified his needs and made recommendations to assist him – provided us with guidance and support throughout, which made such a huge difference to my son who needed both behavioural and educational support"

Mrs Hamilton

"We've been part of The King’s School family for 7 years. We've seen our children grow in stature, maturity and their own personal faith. At no other school will you ever be given a prophetic word or verse of Scripture for your child! They're loved, cherished and valued by ALL the staff as if they were their own children."

Mrs Boxall

"The King’s School has been a huge blessing to us and our children. They love learning here, they love the teachers, they love the atmosphere. We’d recommend it to anyone."

Mr Hicks

"The King’s School's been an amazing experience for not only our children, but for our entire family. The school welcomed our family when we moved to the area, other parents and children were incredibly supportive and kind, and we instantly felt at home."

Mrs Shergill

"The King’s School is beautiful, inside and out! Every day our daughter learns so much more than just phonics and maths, she learns who she is and what she can do as an individual, and this school not only allows her to do this but encourages and supports her in every aspect."

Mrs Price

"The King's School is incredible. The staff are amazing and really care about & know all the children so well. Our girls have come on in leaps & bounds since joining. We love the atmosphere and the whole ethos. Couldn't imagine them being anywhere else now. "

Mrs Mullane

"Fantastic School. I have 1 in senior in his last year, and 2 in primary. The communication between staff and parents is very good. The kindness shown by staff throughout the primary school clearly inspires the pupils to emulate this towards each other. Highly Recommended."
