William Parker show in 1990

Back in 1990 a record number of pupils from William Parker School in Daventry took part in their largest production ever.

The school staged ‘54321’ featuring pupils from every year group.

The show aimed to explain exactly what went on in a modern classroom, and featured pieces of actual work done by the students.

Parts of the show included work done by students on apartheid and nuclear war, humorous choral pieces, the trials and tribulation of young love, as well as drama, dance and French.
