Congratulations and thank you to the 49 children who joined Mrs Humphrey, Miss Adams, Mrs Hallsworth, Mrs Armitage and me on our annual pilgrimage to the Birmingham Arena for the Young Voices experience. You performed with energy, behaved impeccably, showed enormous stamina and (hopefully) had an experience that you’ll remember forever.

It was tricky to get into the rows of the stadium to get photos of everyone in action, but I hope that the following few pictures give you a flavour of a wonderful day.
