Year 7 and 8 pupils perform at The Royal Albert Hall
On the 23rd November 2015, a group of 58 of our Year 7 and 8 pupils performed at The Royal Albert Hall on the opening night of the Music for Youth Proms. They were joined by 25 Year 6 pupils from local primary schools : The Butts and Wootey’s. Months of hard work and weekly rehearsals culminated in a stunning performance as part of the massed ensemble of a set of songs written by Alton’s own Martin Read.
We enjoyed a fun day out in London, which included a trip to the Science Museum, and the pupils were a credit to the school with impeccable behaviour and positive energy.
Thank you so much to everyone involved including Mr Farris, Miss Riall and Mr Ellis who came with us on the day and all the family members who came to support us on the night.
Head of Music Service Jill Larner summed up the event perfectly by saying!
“Awesome, unforgettable, moving, superb, magical, brilliant etc etc!
Martin would have loved it.”

The Palatine Hill is the centremost of the Seven Hills of Rome and is one of the most ancient parts of the city. It stands 40 metres above the Roman Forum, looking down upon it and upon the Circus Maximus. From the time of Augustus, Imperial palaces were built here. https://t.co/pOiISv7ogR 3:56 PM - 20 Feb 2019
