Scalby’s students perform in concert

STUDENTS from Scalby School in Scarborough performed at a special carol concert as part of a Christmas event with more than 200 students from schools throughout Yorkshire.

The event was held at Outwood Academy Portland in Worksop, where students got together to perform medleys of traditional songs for students, staff and the local community.

The Year 7 choir from Scalby School took part in the Christmas workshops throughout the day and also performed a festive number at the carol concert in the afternoon.

All schools within the Outwood Grange Academy Trust were involved in The Christmas Cracker event, which also included a full day of festive activities and workshops for Years 7 and 8 students.

Pam Bayston, director of Performing Arts, said: “We wanted to create a seasonal event for the students to enjoy, but also to unite all the academies within the trust.

“Students, staff and the local community really got into the spirit of Christmas.”

David Read, headteacher at Scalby School, said: “The atmosphere at the event was fantastic; all the students, staff and the local community all came together to enjoy the activities on offer as well as the concert put on by the students.” Schools involved in the project included Outwood Grange Academy, Outwood Academy Adwick, Outwood Academy Portland, Outwood Academy Ripon, Outwood Academy Valley and Harrogate High School.
