Junior Choir Competition 2018

Earlier this month Kingham Hill School was very pleased to welcome seven junior school choirs to the School Chapel for its eighth annual choir competition.

Choirs from Kingham Primary, Windrush Valley, St Catharine's Primary, St Hugh's, Middle Barton Primary, Shenington Primary 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, Mark Glanville, and Hilary Tadman-Robins. With vast experience teaching Chapel music, performing in national operas across the world 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 gospel hymns, pop songs and musical theatre numbers, the judges retired to make the difficult decision on the category winners.

While waiting for the results our choirs and guests were thoroughly entertained by songs from our pupils Isha, Sholto, Mary, Heather, Luigi and Charlie.


Next our choirs waited nervously for the big announcement from the head adjudicator, Dan Chambers. After talking through the judges thoughts on each choir, Kingham Primary was awarded the Best Unison Performance, St Hugh's School the Best A Cappella Performance, and Wychwood Primary the Most Technically Proficient Performance. St Hugh's then received the trophy for Best Overall Choir.

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