A Festive Showcase of Diverse Talents at Christmas Extravaganza

The end-of-term Christmas Extravaganza provided an opportunity for pupils and staff  to perform for their peers, whilst raising money for those in need at Christmas.

Anticipation was high: every seat in Big School was taken for the festive evening of musical and creative entertainment. Pupils presented an eclectic programme of polished performances, with the audience treated to classics old and new, from Bing Crosby to Green Day, Wham to Adele.

Launched in 2013, the Christmas Extravaganza was created as a platform for the diverse talents amongst the staff and students alike. And, in the spirit of Christmas, as an opportunity to raise money for good causes.

This year’s event raised a record £1,284 for the school charity, World Child Cancer.
