Choirs shine at ninth annual Junior Choir Competition

Last week Kingham Hill School was very pleased to welcome four junior school choirs to the School Chapel for its ninth annual choir competition.

Choirs from Emmanuel Christian, Holy Trinity Primary, Dormer House and Wychwood Primary schools took to the stage to compete for the three prizes on offer.


Judging the closely matched contest were the three expert adjudicators, Dan Chambers, Claire Bradshaw, and Hilary Tadman-Robins. With vast experience teaching Chapel music, performing in operas across the country and directing choirs, our judges relished the opportunity to see so many talented young singers in action.


Following a wide range of performances, including traditional choral hymns, pop numbers and original songs, the judges retired to make the difficult decision on the category winners.

While waiting for the results the choirs and guests were thoroughly entertained by a giant sing-along exercise with our Gospel Choir and a number of energetic performances from our school Gospel Choir.

Next our choirs waited nervously for the big announcement from the head adjudicator, Claire Bradshaw. After close competition, Wychwood Primary was awarded the Most Technically Proficient Performance, Dormer House the Best Unison Performance, with Dormer House then receiving the trophy for Best Overall Choir.



Congratulations to the competing schools for some wonderful performances, we enjoyed welcoming everyone to Kingham Hill School.
