Deaf and hearing impaired students at Allerton Grange School have come to the aid of the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Becky Allen, a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter from the Company (RSC), enlisted the help of the school’s students to create signs for the play Much Ado About Nothing.

She is now going to incorporate these signs into a live online screening of the play which the RSC hope will be broadcast across the country later in the year.

Teacher Kim Davis said: “This is a very prestigious and rare opportunity for our students to participate in preparing for a live feed of the play coming from the RSC in the near future.”
