History comes alive at Moyles Court

The clock was turned back at Moyles Court School just before half term as staff, students and guests gathered for an evening of music and recitations from the Victorian period. Mr Milner-Smith, resplendent in cap and gown, was a suitably attired Headmaster, and the colourful and imaginative costumes worn by those attending conveyed just the right atmosphere. A former pupil kindly agreed to take portrait photographs of the guests.

A beautifully-presented finger buffet was prepared and served by the GCSE Catering and Hospitality group before the evening’s entertainment began. Singing, dancing, piano solos, a recitation, and a dramatised reading – the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party from Alice in Wonderland – all went to make up a truly authentic Victorian ‘parlour evening’.

Mrs Butterfield, Head of History comments: “We would like to thank all those who took part and made this event so enjoyable.  When history comes to life for our pupils, it makes all the difference to their learning experience and to have so much fun along the way is just magical.”​
