House Talent Show

This year’s House Talent Show was the biggest and best yet! In addition to Prep children and parents of those taking part in the Final, we welcomed Pre-Prep pupils, plus a class from Welcombe Hills School, to join the audience.


The range of acts was astounding: from Rubik’s Cubes being solved in record time, to Columbian dancing, to interactive poetry recitals, to singing and dancing and original compositions. The quality of the performances was equally astounding; each and every finalist had practised and perfected their act.


The judges this year were selected from the Junior Croft Council, one representative from each Year group, and they had a difficult task deciding who would come out as the eventual 2017 winner. In the end, their choice was Charlotte K, who delivered a dramatic performance on the most enormous Chinese drum you could imagine! Included in her act was a brave and determined speech in Mandarin as well as gymnastics performed on the drum itself. These were met by gasps from the audience.
