School’s music competition adapts to coronavirus conditions

Written on April 1, 2021

Normally Haberdashers’ Adams’ annual competition is hosted live on stage and the school’s sports hall is turned into an auditorium for the occasion. The Covid pandemic meant that was not going to be realistic this year, so the school’s music department was determined to find a solution so that the show could continue safely.

Head of music Malcolm Brown said: “The annual house music competition is one of the highlights in the school calendar and so we were very keen to find a way in which it could still go ahead this year to give pupils something to enjoy aside from their academic studies.

The scores for each of the individual categories were added together to reveal that, for the first time, there were two house winners – Darwin and Webb – and both house flags are now flying high from the top of the main school building.

Headmaster Gary Hickey concluded the afternoon by congratulating both houses on their joint win.
