STUDENTS at Littlegreen School travelled to London to take part in Voice in a Million at Wembley Arena.

The event, on March 12, involved schools from all over the country and this year 5,000 children gathered at the stadium and learnt a selection of songs to perform.

The children sang Let Me Entertain You by Robbie Williams and When I Grow Up from the musical Matilda.

The songs were then sang in front of hundreds of people.

Key Stage Two leader at the school Alex Graham organised the trip. “This was by far the best trip that we have ever been on,” she said. “The boys thoroughly enjoyed performing as well as the staff.”

Representing the school, 14 boys went along and seven staff joined them. Littlegreen is a special school in Compton, for boys who have social, emotional or behavioural difficulties.

A school spokeswoman said: “Many of the children at Littlegreen School have come from previous schools where they have been excluded from events like this.

“To be given the opportunity to be part of a wider society promotes pupils self-esteem. Not only did the boys cope with the concert but they also behaved extremely well when waiting around, which there was a lot of. The children behaved fantastically and waited very patiently whilst playing lots of games.”
