One of our pupils won the Year 5 and Year 6 category in the Young Oxford Art competition in 2017.
Every year we have attended NAPE Oxon’s Festival of Voices at Dorchester Abbey in the summer, where the choir has performed with other schools.
The school holds between 4- 6 internal concerts, where the children have been able to showcase their own musical talents.
At Christmas pupils have sung in the Clarendon or Westgate Centre to raise money for OxPAT, organised by Cllr Susanna Pressel. Pupils have sung at the local sheltered accommodation: Grantham House and later Furnace House. At Christmas the school have also recorded two carols for Radio Oxford.
When the school has undertaken large performances a parent has designed Singing St Barnabas T shirts. We have had 3 designs. In 2009 KS2 performed Oliver at Cherwell Secondary School. In 2010 the school led a concert with other local schools at the Sheldonian. In 2011 Year 5 and Year 6 performed Joseph at the North Wall.
The school has a choir and they have performed at various events including Voices for a Better World at the O2 in 2010. Concerts at the St Barnabas’ Church, New Theatre, Royal Albert Hall as part of Music for Youth Proms have been other events supported by the choir.
