Choir meets once a week on a Monday lunchtime. It is open to anyone in Key Stage 2 and we are often preparing for concerts that we are taking part in.
This term we are preparing to sing at the joint Christmas Carol concert that we organise and take part in every year at The Bishops' Blue Coat High School. This concert will be on Thursday 14th December.
