Warberry puts on spectacular production of The Lion King

Year 6 pupils at Warberry Church of England Academy, which is part of the Learning Academy Partnership, put on the West End version of The Lion King for their end of year performance.

The children performed the show onstage at the Spires College, with family and staff all in attendance.

Every year, the Year 6 pupils get to put on a musical production before they leave the academy to move on to secondary school.

Taking part in a production gives the children an opportunity to be creative and get stuck into performing in their final weeks. 

It is also a great way to support pupils in improving their confidence and having fun before they break up for the summer holidays.

The Year 5 pupils were also given the opportunity to be involved in the production, providing supporting vocals and getting inspired for their Year 6 production next year.

Karen Southard, Head Teacher at Warberry Church of England Academy, said:  

I am really proud of our final year pupils for putting on a fantastic show for the whole academy. It was a joy for all the staff and parents to watch them perform after all their hard work in rehearsals.

“There wasn’t a dry eye in the house, and it was particularly special to watch all of the pupils flourish in their characters and inspire the Year 5 pupils, who we can’t wait to watch perform next year.”
