Portland Place School spread seasonal spirit at its inaugural carol service, held on Tuesday 12 December at All Souls Church on Langham Place. The event was part of the 21st anniversary celebrations for the Marylebone-based school.
The Portland Place choir entertained the audience with renditions of upbeat choral pieces and the congregation joined in with a selection of traditional songs. Following the service, parents, staff and alumni were warmly invited back to the school to enjoy treats such as mulled wine, hot drinks and mince pies.
Headmaster David Bradbury commented: “Here at Portland Place School we encourage a strong balance of academic and creative, an approach that we believe enables our students to thrive and continuously benefit from throughout their lives. The Portland Place choir is an example of how we provide our pupils with the opportunities to develop and express this creativity through extracurricular pursuits.
“All Souls Church is a striking building and the perfect place to host our first carol service. It was a great way to start our festive celebrations and mark the lead into our 21st anniversary year; we are truly in the Christmas spirit now.”
