The corridors of All Saints have been alive with the sound of music this week as students rehearse for an array of end of term spectaculars.
Things are a little different this year and we've been unable to invite you into school to be our audience but that doesn't mean you have to miss out. All of our performances have been professionally recorded for you and your family to watch whenever you like, wherever you like.
An enormous thank you to all students for taking part, to Ms Wilkinson, Ms Henry and Mr Bick for organising and to Sam Huston of Dorian Productions for the recording. An additional thankyou to all our visiting music teachers for their vital help throughout the term. Particular thanks to Georgina Leach for leading our string orchestra and to Jody Humphries for running our steel pan band.
It's time to put your feet up, grab a mince pie, sit back, relax and enjoy.
Christmas Carol Service
Our Carol Service takes the traditional format of lessons (readings) and carols and is based on the world famous carol service of Kings College, Cambridge. It is filmed in our local parish church, St Pius X and features Christmas messages from Fr Peter and our Headmaster, Mr O'Neill.
You'll see and hear students performing alongside a professional brass quintet and listen to all your favourite carols, including Hark The Herald, O Come All Ye Faithful and Silent Night.
A big thankyou to Fr Peter for hosting us and to Ms Mealy and Mr Sunny for all their assistance with the liturgy.
Make sure you watch all the way to the end - there's a special treat waiting for you.
