Celebration of culture and learning at Gateway Academy Eisteddfod

BUT was the high-light a great dance-off to Disco Inferno? (it is at 7.55 if you want to skip forward on the film).

An Eisteddfod is a welsh celebration of culture and learning. In the scottish highlands, it is called a Mod (no not them with the parkas!).

The brain-child of welsh drama teacher, Matthew Knight, the second annual day was a fantastic celebration but also had education at its core.

In many ways it highlighted why the school was given an ‘Outstanding” Ofsted.

Here, we see the KS3 students (years 7-9) displaying their talents in monologue, poetry, dance and maths.
