Sound of Music We have very much enjoyed collaborating with the Drama Department on this exciting venture and were delighted with the results. Very many thanks to all involved and congratulations on a superb show!

Junior Choir Junior Choir went to St Mark's Primary School on Thurs 25th June and sang to their Junior Choir. We sang 'Jonahman Jazz', 'Alleluia' and highlights from 'Grease'. St. Mark's School choir sang songs by Abba and introduced us to a new warm up song. It was a very enjoyable afternoon in which our choir sang enthusiastically and clearly. Their choir realy enjoyed the visit and we have been asked to return next year. Well done everyone!
