World Book Day is in the second week after half term.  This year we're not asking staff or students to dress in book costumes, but instead we will be holding a lunchtime book quiz in the LRC.  Students will need to sign up before the event and they can take part in teams of up to four.  The theme for this year is 'Share a Story' and we're asking form tutors to do something book-related during registration that day.

A huge well done and congratulations to all of the musicians who took part in the Proms concert at Whittlebury Hall on Sunday 3rd February. The concert involved 110 musicians in all including the Sponne Concert Band, Brass Band,  Jazz Orchestra, Senior Choir and visiting championship section brass band from Oxfordshire, Kidlington Concert Brass. The groups played to a packed capacity audience of over  350 people. Each group played some of their own repertoire as well as playing together as a massed band. The event showcased many talented soloists including:  Lucy Wood who gave a rendition of the cornet solo  'Buster Strikes Back' . Ellie Taylor, Lucy Underwood and Sam Tollervey all performed a trombone trio with their counterpart section from Kidlington Concert Brass. A comical arrangement of 'Mr Sandman' featuring Jake Rees, Oscar Williams, Ross Baker and Tom Barker  on handbells and tubular bells  had many of the audience members chuckling! The evening concluded with the traditional last night of the Proms music: Fantasia on British Sea songs by Henry Wood with audience participation led by Tom Perks.  Felicity Holmes led the singing of Jerusalem and  Land of Hope and Glory.
