The Final Countdown to Prep House Singing

May 10, 2024

After weeks of rehearsals, the four Prep School Houses shone on the stage in the Prep House Singing Competition. Each House chose a song related to the theme, ‘Reach for the Stars’, and their choices were out of this world.

With almost a full house in The Shed and stars in their eyes, the competition began with Lockwood, who sang A Sky Full of Stars by Coldplay, followed by Gwyn with Let in the Sun by Take That. Both Houses performed with a wonderful balance of emotion and energy, and some equally fabulous choreography. Mr Adlington’s Clarinet ensemble then performed a lovely version of Scarborough Fair before Baker and Symonds performed their songs. Baker’s interpretation of Rhianna’s song, Diamonds, included some beautiful solos and excellent harmonies. Symonds ended the show with a powerful rendition of The Final Countdown by Europe. They performed with incredible confidence and perfectly timed choreography, which made for a delightfully entertaining performance.

After much deliberation, our Upper Sixth judges: Head of School, Dee (Gascoigne), Head of Gascoigne, Grace, and Prep School Prefects, Jasmine (Gascoigne) and Alice (Swift) crowned Symonds the stars of the show and winners of this year’s competition.
