Congratulations to Merchants, winners of the House Song Competition 2020!

Posted on October 8, 2019


We had such fun at the annual House Song competition, which, this year had a ‘Queen’ theme! The overall collaboration with very senior girls working with all of the lower years is what makes such Whole School House events so special.  The challenge was met with enormous enthusiasm by all of the houses and, as ever, the choral effects were spiced up with some incredible dance and gymnastic moves, some great lighting effects and, for the first time in the competition’s history, blasts of confetti!

Each routine was put together in only one week and led entirely by some very talented Sixth Formers who directed and choreographed their houses so efficiently. Our guest judge, Chris Hoban, the Director of Music from St Peter’s School in Lympstone, was clearly impressed. As he said in his “summing up” choosing an overall winner was no easy task but the show openers, Merchants, with a colourful rendition of ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ ended up narrowly pipping Goldsmiths’ ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ to the post! Well done to Miss Lavelle for coordinating a much-loved and truly successful event!
