Director of Music, Mrs Sargent, said: “ A wonderful way to end the term with a real wealth of music – traditional, classical, film and musical theatre – there was something for everyone. The talent at Withington never ceases to amaze me. Well done to all who took part – what a send-off to our wonderful Year 13s.”
