The annual Christmas Celebration took part on Wednesday the 12th December 2019. The audience were warmed by solo’s, groups, instrumentalists, comedians, dancers and actors. The whole performance was hosted expertly by our head boy Michael Gee and Molly Power who has secured a lead role in the Curve Young company. Guests were treated to covers and original compositions of Christmas themed material such as ‘Last Christmas’ and other repertoire such as ‘I have nothing’ by Whitney Houston.

What made this show different was the special year 7 feature inspired by a trip to see West Side story. No Christmas concert would be the same without a mass year 7 choir performing ‘America’ and ‘Rocking around the Christmas tree’ that had more performers than ever before and the staff Christmas single, where I might dare to say, featured more talent than not this year with I wish it could be Christmas by Whizz.

All students involved from the performers to the backstage crew worked professionally to deliver a smooth-running show which repeated 3 times in the day. The primary schools that attended the second show allowed them to have a taster of what to experience when they attend New College in 2020. One student said, ‘I can’t wait to come here and be part of the this’.

Thank you to all the staff that supported behind the scenes and the fantastic audience who were up on their feet dancing and singing at the end.
