    DATE POSTED: MONDAY 8 MAY 2017

    The Battle of the Bands held on Friday, 24th March was a great success with all the school bands and a student led band competing for the trophy.   The Apprentice Band, comprised of mainly Year 7 students who have been learning their instruments for only a few months, were the winners of the Battle of the Bands cup.  Awards were also given to individual performers on various instruments.  Many thanks to Anjali Perin, who was our adjudicator and who also sang two numbers with a staff band at the start of the evening.  Thanks also to the staff who coached the bands and, of course, to all the students who performed so brilliantly throughout the evening.

Christmas Concert 2014

The Christmas Concert took place on Tuesday, 9th December and was enjoyed by a large audience of parents and friends, seated at candlelit tables .  Mince pies and other festive snacks were provided and everyone joined in with a number of traditional carols.  The rather less traditional carol  “I want a hippopotamus for Christmas” was performed by Tour Orchestra with the singing led by two Year 10 students.  At this Concert, we said goodbye to our Director of Music, Miss Anne Heavey, and she was presented with flowers and gifts from the students.   We will welcome Mr Arran Ness as our new Director of Music in January.   Photos of this Concert are displayed on the Gallery.

The day following the Concert, our Brass Ensemble and a number of our Woodwind players performed carols in Enfield Town Shopping Centre and in Waitrose in aid of the North London Hospice under the direction of our brass tutor, Mr Simon Tate-Lovery.  The huge thank you to all the students who performed.  Photos of this event are also displayed below.
