The main hall was transformed into the famous Strictly Come Dancing Set on the last day of term as our lower sixth form pupils put on a dazzling charity show.
The performance has so far raised well over £700 for two of the school’s charities – EducAid and Christie Hospital – and utilised the year group’s immense talents, from lighting, sound and ICT to choreography, dance and live music.
Hosted by Mr Russell and accompanied by judges Mr Howson, Mr Thorley, Mrs Chesterton and Mrs Wilkinson, our couples performed their routines to a packed hall following just three weeks of training from Charlotte and Rebecca Helme, two talented dancers from the year group.
Following performances from representatives from every form – plus a “celebrity” appearance from Mr Masters and Mrs Fenton – the judges chose Alice Carr and Jamie Rahman from L7 as the winners, scoring an impressive 38 out of 40.
With even more money due to be collected in the new year, the Lower Sixth enjoyed a fabulous start to their Christmas breaks.
