Please pass on a huge thank you to all the children, staff and helpers who were such an amazing group of people for this year’s Children in Need choir in Alnwick.
We have had some tremendous feedback – some even saying our choir members were the best of all!
Despite the long day, I hope everyone enjoyed themselves and thank you too for all your help with the various form-filling and replying to my many phone calls!
Thanks again and best wishes

Another year and another great performance from our wonderful school choir, I and everyone at St Andrews thought your performance was superb, this again was not only the view of our parents but of all parents there from other schools, comments such as "brilliant', 'outstanding' and " they have stole the show again" are just a few of the comments I heard whilst leaving. I know Molly will miss the choir greatly when she leaves in the summer and i know it will leave me with a heavy heart, keep up the great work kids :)

I have been with pupils on many visits now and I never fail to receive compliments from some members of the public on the school's excellent behaviour. I was not disappointed yesterday as a group of people seated behind us in the theatre spoke to me and said that they were all retired teachers and admired the children's conduct.
