Music Department 

Half Term Concert 

Our traditional October Half Term concert took place online this year with a fantastic range of pupils from different year groups performing. Pupils gathered in their year group bubbles around the school this morning to watch their peers (and themselves) performing in a number of different ensembles. Congratulations to all of those involved! You can watch the concert by clicking the image below.


Art Department 

The pupils are hard at work building their portfolios. Here is a snapshot of the sketchbook belonging to one of our Lower 6th Form pupils! You can click on the image to browse.
