House Singing 2023

19 Oct 2023

This year’s House Singing did not disappoint, as our entire Senior School community revelled in Big School for arguably Barney’s most popular and entertaining House competition last night.

Pupils confidently performed a range of hits in the Junior competition and later, in the Senior competition, for their Part Song and Unison renditions, which included ‘Party in the USA’ by Miley Cyrus, ‘Africa’ by Toto and many other hits.

Well done to Marwood, which won the Junior competition, while Longfield came out on top among the Seniors, in what were all keenly contested affairs decided by only a few points each.

We are grateful to Dominic Lawson for adjudicating the event, the Live Band, Barney’s Music department and everyone involved in putting together our annual spectacle.

Now…sit back, relax and enjoy all the action from a wonderful evening by following the links below!
