On Thursday night, the Chapel was alive with the harmonies of Soft Song 2022. Each house gave a fantastic performance, and it was brilliant to see the whole school come together for this annual tradition.
While the evening is all about music and community, there is always a winner, and this year it was a joint win for QM Hall and Duncan. Well done to all who took part - it was another wonderful evening to remember!

1st Duncan - Blinded By Your Grace. Stormzy.

"It was a particularly moving and poignant evening as School House performed a song chosen by Issy, and the song was performed in her memory. The whole UVI then joined School House to sing one of the final choruses. My thanks to the Heads of House, House captains, and Dr Horseman, Mr Dearsley and Mr Hartley-Stevens for their hard work and support."
