Virtually King's Week: Highlights

Couldn't make the live Virtually King's Week events? We've got you covered. Take a look at all of the highlights below! These videos will be available to watch until September.

'From King's to Farms for City Children' - A Talk by Michael Morpurgo OKS

We were delighted to have author and poet Michael Morpurgo deliver a talk to students, OKS and staff. Michael spoke about his memories from King's and his charity 'Farms for City Children.'

Dire Straits (King's Week Student Cover Band)

Every year, a group of students come together and perform a tribute to some of the world's most recognized bands and artists. This year was no different! Recorded and filmed with phones during Lockdown, the King's Week band present five songs by the legendary Dire Straits.

Jazz on a Summer Sunset

A selection of classic tunes from the 1940s, 50s, and even a Sweedish folk tune! Unable to perform on Green Court, all music was prepared, recorded, and produced by students from home during the COVID 19 pandemic. 

Spem in Alium by Tallis

Considered by critics as one of the greatest pieces of early English music, King's students and staff perform the beautiful  Spem in Alium  from the comforts of their own homes. 

Captain of School's Closing Message

Listen to Captain of School Ben Helme (CY/GL 2015-2020) close Virtually King's Week by talking about the challenges that the School has faced, and the warming community spirit that has lifted students and staff. The speech is followed by a performance of Chilcott's Irish Blessing, by members of the School's choirs and orchestras.
