Run by Mr.Phillips, West Side Story was performed on the 26th, 27th and 28th of February, with the curtain up at 7:30.

"The costumes/ hair and make up were so realistic I didn’t recognise some students…………"
Breathing Welsh Fire into our Eisteddfod
March 1st not only marked St David’s Day, but also saw Chepstow School celebrate their annual Eisteddfod with style.
Competitions were held all week, with curriculum areas challenging students with competitions. While the History Department focused on Henry Tudor, the RE Department designed a new Welsh Bible. The PE Department held an inter-house Atomic Rugby House competition, and the Music department threw down the gauntlet in a House Sing Off. The English Department ran a wordplay competition, kindly sponsored by a 100 word story tweet and an Englyn poetry challenge.
The event was hosted by PE staff members, Noel Hine and Sian Evans who seamlessly wove Welsh and English together for a truly bilingual occasion.
Staff took part in a traditional Welsh folk dance, costumes et al and there were live performances from students in Years 7, 8 and 9.
As if all that wasn’t enough, there were personal messages for Chepstow recorded from Welsh weather presenter Behnar Azghar, WRU players : Jonathan Davies, Dan Biggar and Tavis Knoyle and a message all the way from Argentina from the MCC whilst on their cricket tour
Finally, the Chairing of the bard was fabulous. The winner of the chair was Erin McInnes Willard in Year 8.
