Staff and students celebrate the end of term with The X Factor’s Got Talent – Ipswich School style!

Ipswich School staff revealed a host of talents at the end of term, as they took to the stage to perform in a special charity show.

In a mash-up of two great TV talent shows, groups of staff sang and danced in a variety of tribute acts and original sketches, much to the delight of the pupil audience. 

Masterminded by two teachers – Tracy Boyle and Lindsey Ward – the event on Thursday 14 December was attended by around 200 pupils, with ticket sales raising money for the school’s charity this term, the African Children’s Choir. The compere for the show was staff member Alasdair Ross, who had just returned from a 61 mile charity walk in aid of Walking with the Wounded.

Four ‘celebrity’ judges gave highly commended awards to a Spice Girls tribute and an Elton John/Nat King Cole tribute, as well as a ‘Nuns on the Pun’ sketch, but the winners were ‘Sciversity’ featuring staff from the Science Department – who also won the ‘Staff Do Strictly’ charity performance two years ago.

Nicholas Weaver, Headmaster at Ipswich School, said: “This was a fun way to end a term of hard work.  Staff enjoyed the chance to let their alter-egos take to the stage, with many hidden talents coming to the fore, and students joined in with laughter and rapturous applause. The fact that we also raised almost £1000 to add to our support of the African Children’s Choir is the icing on the cake!”
