Blame it on the Boogie!

Blame it on the Boogie!

At lunchtime, the buzz around campus was palpable as everyone was focused on two things: house singing and the departure time of their double-decker bus from the Chapel quad to take them and their house to Blackpool. Mrs Williams, Wren housemistress, was reaching fever pitch having spoken to and/or accosted every DPD delivery driver between Fleetwood and Preston in a frantic search for the internet-ordered glittery cowboy hats required for their house song…

I am now just back from a fabulous afternoon at the Grand Theatre in Blackpool, drinking in the wonderful atmosphere of House Singing and revelling in the extremely high standard of vocal performance from every single house. Musicianship, choreography, glittery cowboy hats and all-round entertainment were simply superb. Brilliant to see every single member of the school on stage performing their hearts out.

It was also great fun to be part of the surprise contribution from the Common Room – rehearsals have been taking place in secret locations around the campus for the past few weeks. Our rendition of Gloria Gaynor’s ‘I will survive’ was a little more karaoke than quality, but thanks to a skilled front row and the sterling Strictly-Come-Dancing-worthy footwork from Mr Bradley and Mr Pryor, I think we just about pulled it off! I certainly have even greater respect for all the students who rehearse and choreograph their own house songs to such an impressive level – and thoroughly enjoyed the thrill of dancing (and singing a little!) on the gorgeous stage at the Grand Theatre Blackpool.
