Concert Programmes

We no longer print programmes for concerts, in order to help us meet sustainability aims and objectives. We will supply QR codes, which you will be able to scan to access the concert running orders. We will also print large concert running orders for you to photograph, if the QR codes do not work for you.

Permission Slips

You are not required to complete a permission slip for any of this term’s concerts. We will be assuming that all students will be taking part in the concert/s unless they let their ensemble tutor know otherwise.

Leave your instrument and follow the staff member in charge to the nearest exit. The fire assembly point is at the side of the school (see map).

If you know that you are unable to make rehearsals on a particular week, please let your tutor know in advance. This helps greatly in planning rehearsals.

If you are unable to attend a concert, please let your tutor know as soon as possible! It may mean that parts have to be swapped and ensembles re-arranged, so the earlier we know the better – thank you.

There will always be a member of staff in the foyer area near the main entrance. If you have any questions / problems, please come and find us there…..and reme
