Sixth Form pupils studying English had the pleasure of spending time with OR and Professor of Theatre Studies at Yale University, Murray Biggs on Friday 13 October. Professor Murray Biggs attended King’s School Rochester from 1943-1947 and whilst he resides in the USA, he kindly visited King’s whilst seeing family in Kent on a recent trip.

Professor Murray Biggs spent the morning providing an enlightening talk to pupils and teachers alike, enjoying delving into reviews of Shakespeare’s works and afterwards a select amount of pupils sat alongside our Principal, Mr Charles and Professor Murray Biggs to enjoy lunch together in the Principal’s office.
