The pupils heard from baritone Nicholas Morris, a former King’s School pupil. Head teacher Darren Ayling said: “We were all delighted he could come and talk to us – the arts are under pressure, and he was able to talk about chasing the dreams you have.”

There was also the annual prize giving, and the head teacher’s address and review of the year.
