Well done to everyone who took part! Certificates will be given out in forthcoming House Assemblies, and also the comments sheet that was written by the adjudicator for every performer.


  • We were delighted by the number of Year 7s taking part.
  • Some houses had excellent announcers who spoke clearly and really presented their entries (with titles of pieces and full names of performers) well. Announcers, use the microphone though, then EVERYONE will hear.
  • Most guitarists arrived on stage with their instruments already tuned which was great
  • Most performers made good eye contact with their audience - this can be scary but is definitely the best way to communicate what you're playing well. Those that didn't did not score as highly.
  • Most singers had found backing tracks without the actual singer on which was good. Spotify is the best way of doing this, using karaoke tracks.
  • We had a great spread of styles and genres which was very enjoyable to listen to!
