Students from Years 7-12 donned their gangster suits and flapper dresses at the start of July as they geared up for their production of ‘Bugsy Malone’.

Set in 1920’s New York, ‘Bugsy Malone’ follows rival gangsters and their ‘gals’ as they fight for power, fame and love. Featuring the famous songs, ‘Bad Guys’, ‘Fat Sam’s Grand Slam’ and ‘My Name is Tallulah’, the show was filled with comedy moments, lively dance routines and plenty of splurge gun fights!

The 5th Partnership concert at the Sage Gateshead did certainly not disappoint as students from 11 partnership schools combined their talents to provide a wonderful evening of entertainment. Representative musicians from St John’s performed Zadok the Priest by Handel in the collaborative choir.
