Now in its fourth year, guests enjoyed a full programme of magical musical performances by children aged 5 to 16 (Year 1 to Year 11). The schedule included traditional Christmas carols and more contemporary pieces performed by music ensembles, soloist singers and duets, the Quinton Quintet and the Quinton Singers.

The guests were served a high tea with sandwiches prepared by Mr Davies and a selection of delicious cakes baked by pupils in their Food Technology classes. Sixth formers prepared wonderful hampers generously donated by the school’s parents and staff which were distributed to all guests.

Mary Brown, Residents Support Worker at St Christopher’s Home said: "Residents and staff look forward to coming to the concert at Quinton House every year. It is such a pleasure to see all the children perform."

A spokeswoman for the school said: "A huge thank you to all the pupils, staff and parents involved in this tremendous, worthwhile event."
