Year 6 Leavers Production

This afternoon, Year 6 performed ‘Grease’ to mark the end of their time here at St Mary’s. They showed such confidence and talent – we are all immensely proud of them.

It was particularly great to welcome back Mr Hadfield to the school, to help present the leavers’ books and trophies. We will all treasure his encouragement to ‘shine like stars’.

Good luck Year 6 – we will all miss you.

Wigmore Hall Concert

Yesterday, our Year 5 children performed as part of a special concert at Wigmore Hall, to commemorate the First World War. They were one of 5 school groups that performed, and they sang a song that they themselves had helped compose! Their singing was absolutely beautiful, and they were a real credit to St Mary’s. Well done, Year 5.
