Acclaimed actor Samuel West wrapped up the School's Menuhin 100 Festival in July with 'Shakespeare and Music', a celebration of the Bard's work in words and music.
Samuel read extracts from some of Shakespeare's greatest works, interspersed with a range of musical works inspired by the Bard and performed by pupils. A highlight was a performance by trumpet virtuoso Simon Desbrulais who performed the trumpet concerto Shakespeare Scenes, written for him by Robert Saxton.
Following the performance, those leaving the School in 2016 were presented with their leavers' scores', a tradition whereby the leavers choose a musical score which is then specially bound to recognise their attendance at the School. Headmaster Richard Hillier and Samuel West presented the scores in an emotional yet celebratory ceremony.
