Head drama teacher Jo Bowen said: "This was a chance for anyone to do something they wouldn't normally be able to do in the classroom.
"Drama is increasingly popular at Kesgrave. It was really horrible to have to choose from so many great performances. The standard really was superb."
The festival was such a success it will now be an annual tradition just like the Oscars themselves.
