Coombes Girls School

Carols by Candlelight

The yearly federated Christmas concert, Carols By Candlelight, took place in front of a full house at St James Parish Church on December 17th.

Both Coombe Girls’ and Coombe Boys’ Schools participated with a variety of bands including a guitar band, a brass band and an orchestra.

Between the performances of music were readings of Bible passages and Christmas themed poems, confidently delivered by the Head Boys and Girls as well as a number of other students from the lower year groups.

A capacity audience of parents, staff and even past students thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

Students had been taking part in all-day rehearsals and their hard work clearly paid off with a wonderful end of term Christmas concert. 

Mr Houlston, Head of Music, commented that,  "It was a fantastic evening of high-quality music with an array of performances, and the students across the trust excelled themselves once again".

Well done to all who performed and thank you to all who attended. It is fantastic to see the Coombe community come together to celebrate.
