Queen Ethelburga's Collegiate have been spreading Christmas joy with their annual Christmas carols throughout the community.

  • Queen Ethelburga's students performed Christmas carols at Ripon Cathedral.
  • They also visited Coach House Nursing Home in Sharow to entertain the residents.
  • Christmas is well underway at the school with Christmas lunch served and their iconic Christmas tree up on site.

The Christmas season at Queen Ethelburga's Collegiate has officially begun as the students perform Christmas carols across the community.

Year 4 and 5 choir members performed to the residents of Coach Nursing Home in Sharow:

And students from Chapter House prep school and King's Magna middle school at Queen Ethelburga's also performed at Ripon Cathedral for what is an annual tradition.

"The Chapter House choir have been very busy over Christmas! We want to make sure we're involved in the local community and to support charities and raise money for them."

The QE choir then performed with Boroughbridge Community Choir during their annual charity concert, singing some songs together and with audience participation.

It's Christmas at QE!

As well as a festive lunch for all the students, Queen Ethelburga's have also erected their iconic 51-foot Christmas tree!

The tree arrives at their Thorpe Underwood estate every year and is selected by Head Gardener Mark:

"We look for a full 360 tree... It needs to be a well-sculpted, well-rounded tree. It also sits in front of a very iconic building, so it needs to fit in!"
