At this popular annual community event the guests were served turkey and all the trimmings, prepared by the College catering team and were waited on by College Sixth Formers. They were also treated to some excellent entertainment by pupils from local primary school, Our Lady’s Princethorpe, who sang Hallelujah and Love Shone Down, together with performances by Sixth Formers, Erin Dunn-Morgan and Harriet Molloy, of I’ll Be Home For Christmas, Silent Night and Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.

Mr Collie commented, “It was wonderful to see old and young chatting and simply enjoying the moment together, embodying the true spirit of Christmas. A huge thank you to our Sixth Formers and staff for organising such a fabulously festive event.”
