Christ Church CE Academy has a history of wonderful whole school singing, having previously gained a ‘Platinum’ singing award from ‘Sing Up’ in 2011 and being involved in outreach to other.
Recently, the choir has been taken under the musical direction of Miss Ahearn and Mrs Batchellor, our Year 3 and Year 1 teachers respectively. Our choir forms an important part of school life; with choir singing in both collective school worships and concerts in school.
We are currently in the process of rebuilding our choir and developing and strengthening our range of abilities. We currently have 14 members of choir, which we hope to continue to expand in following years. Our choir runs every Monday after school from 3.30pm – 4.30pm.
Out in the community
Our choir has made previous trips out to Sun Woodhouse Care Home to sing Christmas carols to the residents. Their beautiful singing not only lights up the faces of the residents; but the conversation and interaction between young and old afterwards demonstrates the value of our links with, and service to, our local community.
