Whilst it is on the mind of DofM, here's the music for next term! As always, plenty of music, little time, but I hope there is something for everyone (including the new recruits - it is recruitment time (Boys in years 4/5/6 and Girls in years 5/6/7, only a very small number of spaces available this year) and older once again!) to look forward to.
