Performances

At St Benedict’s we offer many opportunities for children to perform. We have a very popular Choir, Glee Club and Drama Club who perform regularly, as well as a Whole School Production Club who put on a musical each summer, a Nativity Play performed by all our Year 3 children and a Leaver’s Play for all our Year 6 children, and often a Summer Music concert for all those who learn to play an instrument and wish to perform. In addition to this, we perform as a whole school at events such as Harvest festival and our Christmas Carol Service.

In a typical year we perform:

  • Harvest Festival featuring the whole school and the choir
  • visits to local Care Homes by Choir and/or Glee Club
  • Nativity Play featuring all of Year 3
