Pupils from Daventry's Welton CE Academy perform at Wembley Arena

Talented singers from Daventry’s Welton CE Academy, part of the David Ross Education Trust, gave the performance of their lives during a concert at The SSE Arena in Wembley last week.

52 pupils from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 joined choirs from schools across the country as they performed at the annual Voice in a Million concert. 

The event, which is one of the biggest celebrations of singing in the world, provides a unique platform for young people to perform, whilst raising awareness of fostering and adoption.

Mike Colcombe, Headteacher at Welton CE Academy, said: “Having the chance to sing at the SSE Arena in Wembley was a real once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our pupils, which I am sure they will treasure forever.

“At Welton CE Academy, we have a firm belief in creating outstanding citizens. Not only has this performance enriched the lives of our pupils and helped them to grow their confidence, but it has provided them with the opportunity to make a difference to the lives of other children.”


As part of the David Ross Education Trust, Welton CE Academy is committed to delivering academic excellence and embracing the value of enrichment and citizenship. 

A number of incredible experiences, including this performance at The SSE Arena, have been made possible through the Trust’s pioneering enrichment programme, which aims to motivate and encourage young people to develop their passions and discover their talents.
