King’s Gloucester Pupils Triumph at Cheltenham Festival

10 Jul 2018

Several of our pupils in the Junior and Senior School took part in the Cheltenham Festival of Performing Arts with some impressive results.  We had many individual successes taking home bronze, silver and gold medals in Music, Drama and Dance as well as our Junior School King’s Voices Choir who won the ‘mixed choir, aged 11 and under’ category against several other Schools, singing ‘Earth, Sea and Sky’ by Lin Marsh and ‘Make me a Light’ by Philip Wilby.  Well done to everyone who took part and a huge ‘thank you’ to all the teachers who helped prepare the pupils.

The provision of Music, Drama, Dance at King’s is excellent and the opportunities to become involved in performances – from major productions to services in the Cathedral – are exceptional, encouraging our Performing Arts pupils to flourish and inspire the whole school community. We take pride in providing the spark that has led a number of our pupils to pursue their chosen art at higher level and to build successful careers on the stage.
