From talented flautists to vibrant guitar players - Stathern Primary School pupils showed off their musical skills at a special concert held at St Michael and All Angels Church in Eastwell.

Family and friends were invited to a packed venue to listen to youngsters singing carols, playing musical instruments and performing a range of solos and duets.

Headteacher Troy Jenkinson also accompanied opera singer Paulet Penant-Lemard in singing a couple of Christmas songs.

The concert raised £300 for church funds and mulled wine and a light supper were served.

Mr Jenkinson said: “Since we started doing this concert three years ago, the standard of performance has improved tremendously. I was so proud of each and every one of the performers.”

Mr Jenkinson has now stepped down from his position as headteacher and is to be replaced by Mr Matthew Lee who will start at Stathern next term.

Max Webb chair of governors said: “Mr Jenkinson has been an excellent head teacher. Under his leadership, Stathern has consolidated its outstanding Ofsted assessment to be amongst the top 60 schools in England.

“We wish to congratulate him and the staff for this achievement. We are sorry to see him leave and wish him all the best at his new school.”
