To enter, make a £1 donation using our Just Giving page and let your teacher know who your guess is.

We will be revealing one of the Masked Singers each week at our assembly.

If you guessed correctly, you will be entered into a draw to win a prize.

Go to “The Masked Singer” channel on our assembly Teams page for clues and more information!
