PUPILS at Netherthorpe School have performed Roald Dahl’s very first novel James and the Giant peach.

The production saw Year 9 student Nathan Pierce playing the leading role of James Trotter.

Assistant headteacher Peter Bamford said ‘a great deal of hard work’ had gone into the play.

“Many students and staff have spent long hours learning lines, rehearsing, building a set, painting scenery, organising the lighting, printing programmes and much more,” he said.
