Here are some of the endorser’s comments:

‘Overall I am very impressed with the quality of singing, particularly from the choir. It is clear that pupils are encouraged to sing well and with conviction, listening to their tuning, and as a result lots of the singing I heard was very beautiful.

It is good to hear that children are given lots of opportunities to lead singing, particularly in the upper years, and it’s good that this will be developed by supporting them to lead part singing.

It is nice to see such emphasis put on staff training. The training that took place was obviously a valuable experience for the staff that took part and it sounds like it has had an impact on their use of singing in the classroom.

Congratulations again St Mary’s Bryanston Square, you are a golden singing school and I look forward to hearing about your next singing adventures!’

School Carol Service

We had a wonderful carol service on Wednesday. The choir and Year 6 started us off by singing in Latin, then the whole school joined in to raise the roof with some fantastic carols. Year 6 read beautifully, and Year 5 led us in special prayers for Mrs Arnold and Mr Riordan, and for Aleppo in Syria. It was great to see lots of our parents joining us for this special service.
