Twyford CofE High School has been extremely fortunate to work closely with Kingdom Choir Foundation over the last year. The Kingdom Choir have become a household name as they shot to fame in 2018 after singing at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and have since sung at the Queen’s Jubilee and King Charles’ Coronation celebration concerts.  They frequently appear on Songs of Praise and Britain’s Got Talent.  Since November, 30 specially selected students rehearsed every Friday afternoon with the Kingdom Choir, forming a new gospel choir called ‘Sacred’, with the culmination of the project taking place on Monday 27th May at the Barbican Centre, as the Twyford students performed on stage with the Kingdom Choir as part of their 30th Anniversary concert.   

Karen Gibson MBE says: “Without confidence, we cannot achieve positive change, neither individually nor communally. Through the work of the foundation, KGC help people explore and realise their potential by expressing themselves in new and experimental ways”, and the project will help our students develop singing and performance skills alongside building their confidence, oracy, listening and teamwork.
