Now in its second year, the Clayesmore Carol Competition saw a host of eloquent and expressive entries. The overall Prep winner was Charlotte with her beautifully poignant carol ‘Christus Dominus Noster’.
PopFest 2018 provided the perfect occasion to showcase the extraordinary musical talents of our Year 8 children on the last Friday of term. This pupil-directed event involved nearly every member of Year 8 and featured a record breaking 21 musical performances, both original pieces composed by the pupils and popular covers.
Pupils in Year 7 have been exploring Gillian Cross’s story for young adults, ‘Tightrope’, a gritty urban novel set in a deprived neighbourhood, and were lucky enough to have the author come and talk with them about it.
