Children in the choir

Pleasley school choir to wow Wembley crowds

A Pleasley primary school which almost has one in five of its pupils in its choir is set to wow crowds in Wembley.

Anthony Bek Community Primary School on Rotherham Road has just 250 pupils from the ages of three to 11. And almost 50 of these pupils are in the choir which was started by Mrs Donna-Marie Johnson the headteacher in September 2017. Since then the choir has gone from "strength to strength". Now looking for more adventure, on March, 20, over forty members of the choir, are heading down to London on a trip that has been described as a “chance in a lifetime”. They will sing in Voice in a Million (VIAM) along with over 6,000 other children at Wembley Arena in London.

A small group of parents who have children in the choir have got together to help raise some money to buy meals, treats and a smart fleece and several fundraising events have been organised to take place in the February half-term.
