Thanksgiving Service

On 13th March, the school community gathered in Winchester Cathedral for the annual Thanksgiving Service. A combination of dance, music and words helped express recognition of King Edward’s royal and Christian heritage and gratitude to all whose vision, generosity and hard work have enabled us to enjoy our present good fortune and the many opportunities on offer.

The Chamber Choir and School Choir sang works by Vivaldi, Fauré, Rutter and Purcell, with accompaniment by some of the School’s most talented musicians. Fourth Year pupil, Ed Bence, shared the organ playing with the cathedral organist. Salisbury Cathedral’s Revd Canon Robert Titley encouraged all those present to lead lives grounded on respecting and valuing all people and creation; using our gifts, education and privilege to build a just and peaceful world. This was also a fitting occasion to thank Mr and Mrs Thould for their tireless work.
