INDEPENDENT school pupils have performed a trio of concerts to finish the year.

The 80-strong choir at Gad's Hill, Higham, visited Dickens World and Hempstead Valley shopping centre to sing carols in aid of Help for Heroes. They collected more than £400 before the end-of-year service at Rochester Cathedral.

This was preceded by a nativity play acted out by the reception class at The Royal Dockyard Church in Chatham.

Headteacher David Craggs said: "Christmas is always a special occasion at Gad's Hill, made even more special by the many performances our students take part in.

"This year we really wanted to embrace the notion of giving and not just receiving, and it was for this reason we took our fantastic choir out to entertain the public, at the same time raising well over £400 for the Help for Heroes charity.

"My thanks goes to everyone who is part of the Gad's Hill community - students, staff and parents, who have made this term so special for us all.
