Notting Hill and Ealing High School celebrates 150 years with special concert hosted by Angellica Bell

Ealing’s Notting Hill and Ealing High School (NHEHS) has held a concert at Cadogan Hall in Chelsea as part of a series of events to mark its 150th anniversary and was hosted by TV presenter and school alumni Angellica Bell.

Host of the event, TV presenter and 150th bursary appeal ambassador, Angellica Bell said: “I was blessed to have been awarded a bursary at NHEHS – the drive the other students gave me, the belief teachers had in me, and since then the opportunities that have opened doors for me. It gave me an insight into what could be achieved – everyone should have that chance.”

Proceeds raised from ticket sales of the concert will support the school’s anniversary bursary campaign which is fundraising for three new bursary places.

Headmaster Matthew Shoults said: “Monday’s concert at Cadogan Hall was a spectacular evening, and I was so proud of all 140 musicians for their singing and playing. 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. The range of ensembles and the outstanding performances reflect NHEHS’s musical heritage and continuing ambitions.”
