Our first House Song competition took place last week with all 8 new school houses performing a song of their choice.
Each house was placed in a head to head against one another, with the Removes students being the judges in deciding which four should make it through to the Friday final.
The finals were performed in the Vanbrugh Theatre in front of a packed audience!
Werburgh House performed a charming version of ‘Hey Jude’ by The Beatles using their smartphone torches to generate a mystical finale.
Fox House performed an entertaining version of ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ by Rick Astley with some ingenious camerawork.
Dutton House performed a storming rendition of ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight’ by The Tokens with hilarious cameo appearances from Mr Pete Neal and Mr Chris Morris.
Walsh House performed an impressive version of ‘Cups’ by Anna Kendrick shrewdly using plastic cups to execute the song tempo.
All four performances were of the highest standard, with the weeks of preparation which had gone into practice very evident.
The winners were announced following the closing performance, with Mrs Sharon Gareh declaring Fox House and Dutton House as joint winners! Headmaster Mr George Hartley proudly presented the trophy to the prefects from the victorious houses.
This new initiative which will become an annual competition at the school has been a huge success, fostering a cohesive feeling of togetherness within houses and creating bonds between pupils from different age groups as well as teamwork between pupils and teachers.
Further inter house competitions will be taking place throughout the year.
