Schoolchildren from three Waltham Forest schools sang festive carols in a prestigious central London church.

The choral event at St Giles Church in the Barbican saw pupils from three Leyton schools, the Lammas School, Riverley Primary, and Willow Brook Primary.

The schools, which are all part of the Griffin Schools Trust, were taking part in the free to attend Griffin Children’s Chorus event. The event saw all twelve schools in the trust united for the first time in four years.
