Christmas Concert Review
Written by Emily Worrall

After weeks of preparation, our students put on a mind-blowing performance on the night of the Christmas concert. Pupils from Year 7 – 13 dedicated their time to perform for their friends and family. The 6th formers were very helpful and made sure that the students were well prepared so that everything would be amazing on the night of the show. When the night finally came the students were really nervous but they were ready to finally show off their true talents to the audience that were waiting in the lower school hall.
