Young Voices

Each year we are proud to be able to send Year 6 to take part in the Young Voices Choir event, the largest choir of schoolchildren in the country, which culminates in a performance of thousands of children singing at the O2 arena in London.  It is a fantastic experience for everyone and we are looking forward to and practising for January's performance already. Please see the link below for details about Young Voices.
