Queen Anne’s Success at Woodley Festival

Wednesday 3rd April 2019

The drama department were delighted that so many girls wanted to participate in The Woodley Festival 2019.


31 students (from every year group from L4 to L6) took part, performing a huge variety of pieces and styles of drama. From tentative first performers to experienced festival participants, the girls had a wonderful time and achieved fantastic results.




Special mention should go to Cesca M (U4), who, despite fierce competition, won two gold medals and the Junior Shakespeare Cup, and Maddie C (L6) who also won two gold medals and the Senior Shakespeare cup.


Rafiah M (L5) was the recipient of The Queen Anne’s Star for the most promising performance, and Queen Anne’s School was also been awarded the Sonning Players Trophy.




The festival ended with a gala finale concert in which Maddie C (L6) and Hauwa M (L6) (the winner of the Senior Contemporary Acting Silver Medal) had the rare honour of being invited to perform.


Congratulations to all candidates; you were a treat to watch!



“It was scary but so fun! Oh and the feedback was really helpful!” – Cesca M (U4)

“I was so nervous, but I loved it. I’ll definitely do it again!” – Aoife (U4)
