Last Friday’s music concert went down a storm. The musicians (Year 7 to 11) played to a full-house of family, friends and school staff. The concert aims to showcase the musical talents of students in the school and celebrate the achievements of the Music department.

The students demonstrated a broad range of skills, from playing guitar to rapping. Each performance was highly well received with the audience requesting an encore following the final act. We would like to thank Mr Wells, Head of Music, for arranging the concert and to all the students who took part. We look forward to future performances from the department.

The diverse programme is displayed below with photographs from the event following.
