Virtual masterclass for GCSE Drama pupils

Thursday 21 May 2020

On Tuesday 19 May, Mark Tildesly joined 28 Year 10 and Year 11 GCSE Drama pupils for a virtual session.

Mark is a production designer and assistant director, who has just finished designing the new James Bond film. He also designed the set for the National Theatre’s production of Frankenstein and has worked with Danny Boyle on the majority of his films. The pupils spent an hour asking questions and hearing about his career and experiences. The girls have certainly got a lot out of it!
