Middle & Senior School Carol Service:

We were pleased to be informed by Tonbridge that larger numbers are now permitted in their chapel for carol services.  This means we are able to reinstate our Middle/Senior School carol service after its absence last Christmas.  Those who have attended before will recall this wonderful event in stunning surroundings.

The Middle School Carol Concert scheduled for 3 December will no longer take place as Middle School boys will attend the Tonbridge service.  The Senior School Advent service is reinstated at the usual time of 5pm on 3rd December.

The Middle & Senior School carol service will take place in Tonbridge Chapel at 7.30pm on Tuesday, 7 December.  All boys are expected to attend.  Two parents/adults per family are invited and younger siblings may attend.  

Rehearsal for Middle and Senior Schools Boys will take place on the morning of 7 December.  Boys should arrive at school at the normal time wearing school uniform with a blazer/coat (not games kit).   As the boys will be travelling in mini-buses or coaches to the rehearsal, all boys should take a lateral flow test the day before and report the results to our Health and Safety Manager and boys in Year 7 and 8 must ensure they have a facemask. 

All parents attending the Carol Service who are not double vaccinated must perform a lateral flow test before attending the service, as per Tonbridge School’s guidelines.  After the service ends, all boys must check out with their Form Teacher or another member of staff before going home.

Chapel Choir will receive a separate email with further details.
