FRESH from a spectacular summer concert and a five-performance trip in Barcelona, a Scarborough Secondary School is enjoying the high notes of musical life.

Six musical ensembles from St Augustine’s School, with special guests, serenaded a 500-strong audience in its end of term concert at the Spa.

School musical director Oliver Barron praised the pupils’ commitment in delivering the programme, and said he was looking forward to getting on the beat with new starters come September.

He said: “It was a fantastic night. All the kids are still buzzing from being able to perform as part of a school in the Grand Hall.

“I think it’s the first school concert put on at the venue.

“It was a challenge to fill but we managed to do it.

“A lot of hard work was put in over the year, and we’re looking forward to getting started next term with the new Year 7s.

He added: “A big thank you to Alan Edwards and Katie Price, I couldn’t have done the organising without them.”
