School Choir

Our school choir is open to any and all children from years 2, 3 & 4. We do not hold auditions, any child is welcome to join us.

Our choir is led by Helen Bennett and Sean Daly-Brand. 

The school choir meets  regularly on Monday after school in our hall. The members of our choir sing a wide variety of songs and the emphasis is always on having as much fun as possible.

Our choir have performed at many venues throughout Wylam and the whole of the North East, including:

  • Newcastle Central Station
  • The Sage, Gateshead
  • Stanley Burn Care Home
  • Village Fair
  • Hexham Christmas Market
  • The Metrocentre
  • St Oswald's Hospice.

Wylam First School is honoured to be one of the few schools in England with a “Sing Up” Platinum Award.

Want to sing but can’t think of a song? Use the Sing Up, Song Bank Website. You can listen to a song and sing along, or you can download a backing track, print off the lyrics and perform!

Platinum Sing Up School

Wylam First School is proud to be one the first schools in the North East to be awarded a Platinum Award by Sing Up.  We would like to thank Wendy Smith and other members of the team from The Sage Gateshead who worked with us to achieve this award.  They can be confident that singing continues to be a very special part of the schools ethos.
