About Us

This Christmas, Water City Music has brought together choirs from primary schools across the UK to bring some badly needed festive cheer to a country facing its first Christmas under the shadow of the Covid19 Pandemic.

More than 1000 youngsters rehearsed in their school bubbles in preparation for a one-off presentation of the ever-popular festive song, Walking in a Winter Wonderland.

Each choir’s performance was videoed and sent to Water City’s editing elves who weaved their magic to combine each school’s individual efforts into a giant virtual choir.  The finished festive film will be launched – on YouTube – at midday on Friday (December 11th.)

Last summer, the Pandemic also forced the cancellation of our main annual event, the Tower of London Festival. It left more than 2000 children from 69 schools extremely disappointed.

But all was not lost! We were still determined the youngsters would have something to show for all their efforts.

So, pupils from across London learned a song, taught to them by WCM online, and then uploaded their individual recordings. Our video editor, Adam Saunders took over from there, and turned them into a giant virtual choir

If you enjoy what you see, then please share the videos and follow us on Twitter @WaterCityMusic1. We'd love to "go viral"!

St Mark's School Bath - love learning!

    #remotelearning Urgent Chromebook Appeal   Here at St Mark’s in Larkhall, Bath we are launching a Regular Giving campaign to raise funds to improve the environment and facilities that our wonderful school offers. In support of our school vision: ‘St Mark’s vision is to promote self-worth that inspires our students to live well, achieve their goals and be a force for good in their school and in the world.’ Love Learning – Love Life Now our more generic appeal has become more urgent as it is necessary to provide the tools for home learning for the majority of our students. To bridge the digital divide, which exists in most school cohorts, we are launching this appeal to purchase as many £200 Chromebooks as we can, by the end of January. This is to provide the much needed resource for ALL our students to be able to access the on-line lessons they need to thrive in school. So why crowdfunding? Crowdfunding is a great way to hit a fundraising target through a group of people all coming together to put funds in to the same pot and encouraging others to do the same. The larger the group or ‘crowd’ formed, the more money we raise so the key to any crowdfunding appeal is getting the message out there via all of our networks. Please help us to make this possible by donating as much as you can and please pass on the appeal details on your own social media network to family, friends and your other contacts to help spread our message. This is really important within our local community. Every single donation helps. And every single share helps too! To set up a regular donation, please click on the DONATE button. You can choose how much to donate each month, and we could also claim Gift Aid on your donation, boosting each one by 25%. Of course, Regular Giving may not suit everyone, so if you prefer, you can choose to make a one-off donation to help fund our wish list of projects. Thank you for your support! It will really make a difference to the quality of home learning.
