A Brookmans Park school will celebrate its 120th anniversary on Wednesday with a special concert in London.
Pupils from Queenswood School will take part in an extravaganza of music, drama and dance at the Barbican Hall.
West End star Melanie Marshall will sing a mezzo-soprano solo while the Queenswood Festival Chorus and Orchestra, which features singers and players from the school, accompanies her.
The first half of the evenings programme will also feature a reworking of the school’s 2010 production of a William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Students throughout the school will take part in the production which takes place in a 1970s nightclub and is set to a soundtrack of disco hits.
