Pupils at the Bramley special educational needs school will be performing Shakespeare’s classic comedy, Twelfth Night, to mark its ten-year collaboration with Globe Education.

The performance of The Bard’s play will also be mixed with songs from the album Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, as a way of saying a fond farewell to headteacher and Beatles fan Jon David, who is retiring this year.
