The last day of term saw our annual, fiercely-contested House Shout singing competition, with the three houses – with pupils from Years 3-13 participating – each choosing a Christmas song to perform to a discerning panel of judges (Mr Peace, Mr Crump and Mrs Collin) and enthusiastic audience of pupils and staff.
This year Austen narrowly triumphed with their spirited rendition of I Wish it Could be Christmas Every Day, complete with enthusiastically executed choreography. Other awards of the afternoon went to Saffron (Year 7) for winning the Best Christmas Jumper competition, Year 6 for best decorated Prep classroom and Year 9 for best decorated Senior classroom.
The House Shout followed hot on the heels of the traditional Sixth Form Panto, about which more will be related here later (oh yes it will!).
