BBC Songs of Praise

We were invited to join in the congregational singing recording for BBC Songs of Praise at the Victoria Halls in Bolton on Friday 8th March. The children had a wonderful time singing Easter hymns old and modern.

Highlights of the evening included watching JB Gill record his version of 'You Raise Me Up' and the fantastic gospel choir Shalom Chorale singing 'I'm Gonna Ride that Chariot' and 'My Only Hope is You'.

 

Young Voices 2019 

On the 13th February 2019, we took 57 children to Arena Manchester to take part in the Young Voices Concert within a mass choir of 6842 children.

The children were brilliantly behaved as always and had an amazing time singing with some famous faces including: Tony Hadley (Spandau Ballet), Sharlene Hector (Basement Jaxx)and Beau Dermott (Britain's Got Talent).

They also enjoyed dancing with Andy and the Urban Strides troupe.

Visit our Young Voices 2019 page to see all the fantastic photos and videos.

Christmas 2018

As always, Christmas was a very busy time for our school choir.

The children were absolutely fantastic in all their performances and we have received many compliments from the general public about their singing and their wonderful behaviour.

We could not be prouder of each and every one of them.

Watch the show on BBC iPlayer here.

  Make sure you register your child's Blue Peter badge to ensure they can access all the benefits.
