THE 150-year anniversary celebrations for Notting Hill and Ealing High School continued with a concert at historic Cadogan Hall in Sloane Square.

The world premiere of Shooting Stars, a specially commissioned modern classical piece by composer Kerry Andrew, was performed by 140 students from the senior and junior school choirs and orchestra.

TV presenter and 150th Bursary Appeal Ambassador Angellica Bell hosted the concert.

She spoke of her own school days, how her bursary award was a lifeline and how the belief of teachers and support of friends gave her the confidence she has today.

“I was blessed to have been awarded a bursary at NHEHS [with] the drive the other students gave me, the belief teachers had in me and, since then, the opportunities that have opened doors for me," she said.

“It gave me an insight into what could be achieved. Everyone should have that chance.”

Concert ticket sales will support the school’s 150th Anniversary Bursary Campaign as it raises money for three new bursary places.

Headmaster Matthew Shoults said: “Kerry Andrew’s commission for us, Shooting Stars, adds a new, brilliant piece to the choral repertoire, and is a wonderful way to mark our 150th birthday.”

There have been a series of celebrations for 150th anniversary, including a book of 150 years in memories.

In January, there was the official opening of the new sustainable junior school and sixth form space while February marked the anniversary of the move to Ealing from the original site in Notting Hill in 1931.
