Three performances were staged at the school to a specially invited audience of family, friends and school staff.
All in One Night was performed by pupils as part of a Royal Opera House project to promote opera in schools.
Year 6 team leader Susanna Thomson helped direct the opera with colleague Erin Tungate.
