• Gold and silver places in the beginner soloist category, Aime Muscat on trombone and Holly Barber, singing.

The joint choir of the partnership schools completed the festival by performing ‘Joseph’s Coat’ from the Andrew Lloyd Webber /Tim Rice musical, ‘Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dream Coat.’

Mrs Anne Senior, executive head teacher, said: “This was an exciting opportunity for our children to experience performing in a public arena. Many thanks to the High School for giving the Primaries this opportunity. The children were amazing, and we were very proud of them.”
