Choral Competition Timings And Important Information for Parents

This year’s Choral Competition takes place on Thursday 30 September. We are delighted to host the event once more, following the Covid-enforced cancellation in 2020. However, coronavirus is still among us. Therefore, in the interests of the safety of our pupils, staff and parents, we ask that all parents note the following adjustments to this year’s event.

  • If parents wish to attend, they should only attend the session in which their child’s House performs:
  • Day Houses perform in the afternoon session: 4.15-6pm. College Transport will depart at the usual times and all day pupils are required to be off site.
  • Boarding Houses perform in the evening session: 7-8.30pm
  • We can only admit two people from each family. This is very important – so that we can maintain proper safety and ventilation in the venue
  • All parents are strongly encouraged to have taken a lateral flow test on the day, and only attend if the result is negative
  • Face masks are not mandatory, but we would encourage you to wear them
