The usual challenges with being amongst so many other schools. But all our risk assessments covered it. Had to wait for contact from bus driver but he quickly called back. Some parents were there when journeying to the bus. Due to staff being well located throughout the group and vigilant, this was dealt with but worth remembering and putting on the info for parents next time or making more clear to parents that they should not attempt to meet us during exit times. Children really enjoyed it overall! (May 2019 - Primary - Post No: 11783 )

The school goes to this event every year with a choir of just under 60 to create a massed choir of 7-8000 - it's an unforgettable event with outstanding music supplied to schools to work on prior. They love it and put in the extra work learning all the songs willingly. (March 2019 - Primary - Post No: 10630 )




I felt that the staff and children had an enjoyable and safe experience. All the staff were given a pack of all documentation and procedure which could happen. This was also discussed the morning of the trip which I felt really allowed all staff to have a clear understanding of what would need to happen on this specific trip should anything happen.

The venue was very well-staffed and the event was well managed. It was easy to find knowledgeable staff members to ask questions to. Leaving the venue was quicker than expected, although staff had to be highly vigilant as there are a huge number of students leaving at once. Parents who came by car had many delays leaving the venue so next year it would be helpful to encourage them to travel by other means. (March 2019 - Primary - Post No: 10112 )

Venue organisation at the end of the concert was poor. Building works meant it took us an hour to reach our coach. (March 2019 - Primary - Post No: 9866 )

The event was very well organised and a wonderful experience for the children. The only issue I have is that, after the event, we were sent a very long way round which was tiring for the children and made us later home than we could have been (February 2019 - Primary - Post No: 9430 )




An amazing experience for our pupils to take part in, particularly coming from a small school. (February 2019 - Primary - Post No: 9412 )




A superb experience for children to take part in a full production with thousands of others. (February 2019 - Primary - Post No: 9408 )




A well organised event which had clearly defined expectations shared with everyone that was at the event. (February 2019 - Primary - Post No: 9389 )




The concert was a very enjoyable but tiring day. Friday is definitely the day to go! (February 2019 - Primary - Post No: 9320 )




Fantastic event which the pupils loved. Everything was to be celebrated apart from the exit from the venue which felt chaotic. I think barriers would be more helpful to keep the flow and seperate parents from school groups. (February 2019 - Primary & Secondary - Post No: 9247 )




An excellent experience for all the children. The staff are very thorough and able to guide you clearly. (January 2019 - Primary - Post No: 9197 )

The risk assessment was implemented well. All staff knew what the expectations of themselves were during the visit. For next year - we will leave at 11am we will stay in our seats until the end of egress, as that allowed an easier egress and walk back to the coach. Karen Fulker to attend the training day at the 02 in October 2018 to stay up to date on security measures which will be put in place for the event. (February 2018 - Primary - Post No: 1007 )

A musical 'experience' but not very educational, certainly does not develop musicianship or vocal skills. Too many songs to learn so the standard is mediocre. Very expensive for parents and costly in terms of staff time to administrate. (January 2018 - Primary - Post No: 639 )




The children had an incredible experience and thoroughly enjoyed their day and evening. Children who have a special educational need also expressed their enjoyment of the concert. (January 2018 - Primary - Post No: 560 )
