Sister Act is the latest in a series of musical presentations which have been part of the College tradition for over 40 years.

'The work being put in by the students under the careful guidance and encouragement of their teachers has been great to watch, a school musical really brings the values of teamwork and creativity to life. Some of the musical numbers I've seen look and sound brilliant, Sister Act is a really energetic musical and I hope that as many parents, students and members of the public as possible come and support the cast and crew.'
