Dance Their Socks Off 7 saw students from Churchill Academy and Sixth Form lead 400 younger pupils from its cluster schools through a ‘simple journey of a lost sock’. Churchill’s dance department had spent months with primary schools choreographing the dances for the show.

Paul Harrison, second in faculty in Churchill’s performing arts department, said: “We are delighted at how successful Dance Their Socks Off has been and we’re lucky to have such a talented team behind it.

“The performances are a testament to the quality of work delivered by our cluster schools.”

The show is one of several annual activities where Churchill provides its cluster schools with support in the performing arts.
