A handful of A-level drama students are preparing to fly the flag for the Claires Court Shed Theatre at Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
The group, fondly named after the school's drama studio 'The Shed,' will perform their adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's novel The Kites are Flying six times across three days of the popular festival.
Originally performed as an exam piece, the students have returned to the school in Ray Mill Road East in Maidenhead after the end of the academic year to polish their performances.
The cast of Elliot Stokes, Hayley Howard, Charles Tuck and Brooke Snowe will be supported by designer Lucy Wardman and technician Calum Plain.
Teacher Maggie Olivier, who will fly with the students to Scotland, said: "The students are so committed.
"The message is so relevant and the stage is a platform to speak to people all over the world."
The student group will perform on Saturday, Sunday and Monday at the Columcille Centre.
