Children at King’s Hall School in Taunton received a special treat last week as renowned author and multi-award winning lyricist, Sir Tim Rice, came to lead their Prize Giving ceremony.

Famous for his musical collaborations with Andrew Lloyd Webber, Sir Elton John, and Disney, Sir Tim is a much-loved member of the King’s Hall community, with four of his grandchildren attending the school.

An inspiration to family, writers, music lovers and theatre-goers, Sir Tim moved the audience with his tales and experiences. He kept the crowd captivated with words of advice and cheeky anecdotes about his celebrity friendships. He also presented the pupils with an array of prizes that recognised and celebrated their achievements over the past year.

Commenting on the event, King’s Hall Headmaster, Justin Chippendale, said: “It was certainly an emotional and heartfelt day that made not only the parents proud of their children, but the whole of the King’s community. We wish our leavers the very best in their next adventures.”
