Our Senior Choir had a wonderful tour to York, Selby and Whitby.

On the last Friday of the Spring term, our Years 9-11 Senior Choir set off on tour to York to sing three concerts and take in a jam-packed programme of excursions.

As always, our lovely pupils were wonderful. They displayed enthusiasm, resilience and a willingness to engage and get stuck into whatever it was we were doing, from filming a video in a windy Whitby Bay to singing in the beautiful and ancient Selby Abbey.

There is too much to go into here to get across how great the trip was, but highlights certainly include singing beautifully in Pickering Heritage Train Station and Selby Abbey, the hilarious talent show evening, the arcade games in Whitby Bay, the effort and focus of the performers, the team spirit and overall sense that the trip was a celebration of what makes Duke of Kent School a special place.

A huge thank you must go to Mrs Honey, Mrs Punter and Mr Kaye for being fabulous on the trip, to the parents and staff who came all the way to York to watch some of the performances and, of course, to the brilliant children for their commitment and effort.
