ELGAR RECITAL

The music students were out again in force before half term. This time they were singing/playing for a lunchtime recital at the Elgar Birthplace museum at Lower Broadheath near Worcester. The Birthplace has recently been taken over by the National Trust and so all the exhibits were nice and shiny. Upon arrival, the students were treated to a short talk by Joe Tierney from the National Trust about who Elgar was and how lucky we are having such a prominent composer so prevalent on our doorstep. The students were then given the opportunity to have a look around the birthplace itself and play in the sound garden. Following this we had a concert run through before performing the concert itself. The programme itself was basically entirely Elgar and featured solos from Angus and Forbes Wilson, Ellie Muckalt, Sameer Rai, Angie Choi, Tim White and Mrs Wall all of whom played very successfully. The chamber choir sang three songs, including: Ave Verum Corpus, As Torrents in Summer. The Rubato Band played Salut d’amour whilst the orchestra played an arrangement of Pomp and Circumstance. The concert ended with some audience participation, where they joined the Chamber Choir and Rubato Band with singing words to Elgar’s hymn tune Drakes Broughton. The concert was attended by a very good audience, which included members of Bromyard Choral Society, Elgar Chorale, Elgar Society, Malvern Priory Choir and Malvern St. James and of course Lucton. Lucky the Lucton Bear came with us and met their bear named, Edward Elbear! Thanks to all the students along with Mrs Woollard, Mr Maxim, Mrs Taxis and Mrs Wall for coming.

Lucton School CCF flying high

Year 9 Lucton School CCF cadets about to fly at Lucton School

Lucton School Year 9 pupils about to take their air experience flights in a Griffin helicopter from RAF Shawbury on a visit to Lucton.

Last Friday, 60 Squadron, from the Defence Helicopter Flying School (DHFS), based at Royal Air Force Shawbury, Shrewsbury had allocated a Griffin helicopter to visit Lucton School and take cadets on Air Experience Flights. Lucton’s Contingent Commander, Capt Derrigan had nominated Year 9 as the priority to fly, so each member of Year 9 was able to experience the local area from 1000 feet as the helicopter circled the surrounding countryside for around 10 minutes before returning for a rotors running change-over. The cadets were very slick at their change-overs, assisted by a great ground crew team of Paige and Ellie, so we even managed to fly an extra 10 cadets from year 10. When the helicopter was shut down for the safety brief, the Prep School and Nursery also had a good look around. Once the flights had started many Middle School pupils also made their way over to get a look at what their time in the cadets will bring. A huge thank-you to 60 Sqn, DHFS for what we hope will become a long affiliation.             Squadron Leader House.

Lucton School’s Tercentenary Cross Country Run 2016

Picture of the four Lucton Prep School boys who finished in the top five places of the Year 4 boys' race.

Lucton’s Year 4 boys claimed an incredible four of the top five places!

A record 27 schools attended this year’s Tercentenary Cross Country event at Lucton School, with just under 600 runners across the four year age range from Year 3 to Year 6.
St Richard’s were this year’s winners, with Lucton School achieving 2nd place, just 5 points behind. A great result, with Lucton’s best showing in the Year 4 Boys, where Lucton boys achieved 4 of the first 5 places! 1st George Jones, 2nd Jack Sneyd, 4th Zac Powell and 5th Freddie Ammonds. This year’s second place is one better than Lucton achieved last year, displaying great consistency. Successfully hosting such a large number of runners, plus hundreds of teachers and parents was a tremendous logistical achievement with many pupils acting as hares, sweepers, chaperones, marshals, car parking attendants, scorers, first aiders and senior pupils in all manner of roles. A magnificent team effort of which Lucton should be very proud!
