Perseid School

Kings College School Community Partnership Production

The Partnership Production with Kings College Wimbledon has not happened since March 2019 because of COVID restrictions, so this year’s event was extra special, highly anticipated and very much welcomed.

The ethos of the Partnership Production is one of collaboration and imagination, all very skillfully supported by staff and 6th formers from Kings. Five Merton schools together with Coombe Boys and Girls schools and Kings work together to produce the wonderful performance of The One Thousand and One Nights that we watched on Friday 25th March.

Each school rehearses in their own setting on a Friday afternoon with Kings pupils, coming together in the two Friday afternoons immediately prior to the performance to finalise. Pupils from Bond Primary created the props, Kings pupils provided wonderful music and lighting effects and all pupils (Cricket Green School, Bond Primary, Ricards, Rutlish, Perseid, Kings along with Coombe Boys and Girls schools) contributed to the scripting. We are all so proud of Fahima’s marvelous piece ‘Mary Poppins’.

Thank you, Kings College School, for this opportunity.

 ‘This year’s partnership production was outstanding.’ These were the words of the Mayor of Merton at the end of last Friday evening’s performance and they sum up the evening. Many congratulations to all involved. The pupils and staff had worked so hard to ensure that the event was of the highest quality. It was incredibly powerful to see almost 200 pupils on stage at the end of the show singing together.
