The Grantham music festival is a much-loved musical highlight for talented local musicians.

Repton’s Head of Singing, Helen Winter, has a close association with the festival, which was founded by her father, so it was delightful to see that so many of Repton’s pupils from both Prep and Senior perform once again to award-winning standards.

Mrs Winter commented: “Our pupils represented the school spectacularly in this competition outside of school. They really demonstrated how talented they are. It was a great experience with a lovely adjudicator who gave constructive feedback.”
