It has been a very busy start to the year for the pupils of the Music Department, starting with a great performance by SAJO at the Open Evening in September. This was followed by Chamber Choir’s first performance of the year at Tesco with all the new Year 7 singers stepping up and doing a great job. Many of the staff and customers of Tesco were brought to tears of joy with their performances.

There were also many solo instrumentalists, dancers and even a boy band and a girl band. Mr Barron said: “what a great way to start the year with so many talented musicians. I am so proud of them all and to be able to sing to a full house with a crowd of over 450 was fantastic!”

The Music Department are currently fundraising for their trip to Croatia next year.
