The close harmony treble sound of the Libera choir's massed boy voices is like a Stanfield Prize Day choir rather than a church choir.


Art teacher David Light died quietly on 15th June 2019 aged 86 after a short illness.
In accordance with his wishes there will be no funeral service. A memorial celebration of his life and exhibition of his art is planned for August.
See the official announcement.
In addition to the after-school art and sculpture club he organised the lighting and sound for the drama productions. He was also the mainstay of the school choir's training in the 1950/60s - for which he did not always get the public recognition he deserved.
At the end of each phase of his life and career he created a new section of his memoir. It is hoped that one day it may be published on the web.
