On Wednesday 19th October, the whole school gathered again in the Chapel at 7:30pm to have the annual House Unison Competition.

It started off with The South Town singing ‘Starman’ by David Bowie; this tribute to the late David Bowie was especially moving.

Next was Mobley’s House singing ‘Dancing on my Own’ by Calum Scott; for such a powerful song, they were able to pull it off very well.

Next came, Hallward’s House singing ‘No Scrubs’ by TCL; they used good splits of the year groups joining together as one again.

Wiseman’s House sang ‘Hold back the River’ by James Bay, a great song that Wiseman’s House did great justice to.

Then came Watson’s House singing ‘She’s always a Woman’ by Billy Joel, a moving song that as a house, Watson's were able to put across the message of the song clearly.

North Town did ‘Half the World Away’ by Oasis, a great cover sung movingly, despite it being a slow song.

Following that came West Town, singing ‘Crazy in Love’ by Beyoncé, this fast song was done justice by West Town.

Worcester House came next with a compelling cover of ‘Seasons of Love’ by Rosario Dawson.

East Town (winners of Part Song) sung a classic Michael Buble song, ‘Haven't met you yet’ ; this also had good splits of year groups or Block 1 and 2.

Second to last to perform was School House with ‘Let it Go’ from Disney’s Frozen;  this was a funny cover that was a very original choice.

Last to perform  was Oakley’s House with Justin Timberlake’s ‘Can't stop the feeling’; this was sung very aesthetically with loads of energy behind it.

So after the Staff’s song which was very funny and had all the recent events that had happened - such as the Picric Acid- it was time for the results. The Adjudicator being Mr Andrew Forbes, did a clear review of all the songs, in the top three was Oakley’s House, West Town, Worcester House and School House

However in the end, West Town were crowned this year's House Song winners of 2016.
