Fourteen finalists show-cased their skills in the competition at St Louis Catholic Middle School on Tuesday in aid of two charities.

Freestyle dancer Millie Scott, 12, won the show after impressing with moves to music by Lukas Graham.

Rebecca Whittingdale, school council co-ordinator, said: “It was a great way to celebrate the children’s talent and there were lots of happy teachers.

“Millie really loved what she was doing, you could see she was enjoying it and it was different.”

Fifty three acts auditioned for the show and finalists included magic, dancing, girl bands, singers and a saxophonist.

There was even a Lego builder, who created a lever designed to poke people.

The judges were parish priest Fr Mark Hackeson, Sheila Brown from East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), Anne Mansfield, former head at St Louis, and Caroline Dearing, former head of music at the school.

Pupils paid £1 to see the show, which will go towards the school’s fund-raising through Lent for EACH and Catholic aid agency CAFOD.
