Dear Parents/Guardians,

I hope you and your families are well. I’m writing with the final instrumental/ensembles update of the year.

As you are aware, the music contract states that there will be a Christmas concert on Monday 14th December. This was originally planned to take place in the evening at the Victoria Halls, as in previous years. Unfortunately, as the pandemic progressed, we took the decision to move the concert into the school Chapel. We’ve now had to take the further decision to cancel the evening Christmas Concert, in favour of a streamed concert through Microsoft Teams.

This will take place in the form of a solo concert during school time, which will be broadcast to all students in the school. There will be two representatives from each year group performing within the concert. Auditions have started this week and it has been fantastic to see the wealth of talent that our students have. Unfortunately, due to technical and safeguarding reasons, we will not be streaming this concert to parents and carers.

Please could I take this opportunity once again to thank you for your patience and support over what has been a challenging year. I wish you and your families the very best over the Christmas break.

Best wishes,

Mr T. Moore
