Performing Arts Summer Showcase

On Tuesday 13th July, pupils from Year 7 - 12 performed in the Performing Arts department Summer showcase in the courtyard. There were a range of different acts which performed on the outdoor stage including the Elvin Singers, Mind the Gap drama group and the Year 10 Performing Arts dancers.

The audience were brought to tears by some of the beautiful moving performances as well as some great comedy moments.

We are incredibly proud of what the performers have achieved in a difficult year and the performers' courage in the performances - a big congratulations to all pupils involved! 

The highlights from the show is below:
