Summer Music Concert

On Thursday 13 July we held our annual Summer Music Concert to showcase the progress made by some of the many pupils who take Instrumental Music Lessons.

This year over 100 pupils have had instrumental music lessons, with over 3500 classes taking place- an amazing achievement and one which demonstrates the school’s commitment to the subject.

We would like to thank all of the individual teachers: Mr Clarke, Mr Dodd, Mr Edwards, Mr Gerrard, Mrs Griffiths, Mrs Jackson, Mr Langley, Mr Tattersall and Mr Williams for their enthusiasm and commitment this year.

At the concert, there were many notable performances on acoustic guitar, bass guitar, clarinet, keyboard and drums as well as a number of voice performances.  Pupils from Year 7-10 performed, and we were delighted that the event was so well attended by around 45 people.

Congratulations go to all the pupils who performed at the event, and also to all those who have passed grade examination in Guitar or Voice this year.  We hope to increase the number of pupils doing so next year.

Finally, many thanks go to the Food Technology department for the absolutely delicious scones and cakes that they provided for the concert.

If your child would like to continue with their instrumental lessons or start taking lessons, please ask them to collect a booklet from Mr Gregory and return the application form to him as soon as possible.
