I absolutely loved the musical concert- all the children did so well. Was lovely to see both of my children joining in and I am so proud of them both . Thank you so much to Mrs Swaddle and your wonderful staff.

Wow it was absolutely amazing every single child was excellent! Both my parents and I really enjoyed it and we were actually blown away at how good both the children and music teacher was with them! You can clearly see that the children are taught so well during the singing lessons. The song choices were wonderful and the clarity, timing and volume from the children was outstanding so very impressed!! Well done to all we can’t wait to see more!! I also love that music is encouraged it’s so good for promoting the children’s mental health and confidence Thank you we have the best little singers xx
