The traditional Christmas story, with a twist, was recorded in numerous locations around the Broomhall school, with the office of Chris Burch, head of prep school, doubling as Herod’s Palace.

A school spokesman said: “Everyone in Pre-Prep took part in the singing and dancing as angels and shepherds.

“There were wonderful individual performances too, including the three wise men and Mary and Joseph. Their performances were outstanding.”
