School carol service heralds a wonderful start to Christmas

The school’s annual carol service heralded a wonderful start to Christmas. Hosted at St Mary’s Church, in Richmond, the congregation were treated to a feast of tremendous music and readings.

Sixty-one students, across all Year groups, performed in the choir, concert band and symphony orchestra and their beautiful renditions of Christmas carols and feature pieces were to an incredibly high standard. Florence Hall, Year 11, sang and accompanied herself on the guitar. Her interpretation of the traditional carol “In the bleak mid-winter” was simply breath-taking and there was barely a dry eye in the congregation.

The readings were by five students, who were joined by Jenna Potter (Headteacher), Jan Montgomery (English Teacher) Diane Addison (Teaching Assistant) and Andrew Cottrell (Member of the Local Governing Body).

The church was beautifully decorated with stunning Christmas-themed artwork which was displayed in large murals and also on a powerpoint presentation throughout the service.

Special thanks go to the students, Mr Boyd, Mr Millman and Mr Wardale for all their hard work in perfecting the outstanding music for the evening and to Mr and Mrs Lunn for arranging the displays which will remain in the church over the Christmas. Thank you also to Reverend Fletcher and the members of the church for hosting the service.
