Arts Showcase

The annual “Arts Showcase” was as successful as ever this year with pupils from Years 7 to 11 showing some of the work they have done in extra-curricular groups, and through their GCSE and BTEC courses. Themes for the dances included “War” and “9/11” and these were linked to a visit the pupils had made to New York. Musicians sang solos from musical shows, performed on a variety of different instruments and performed iconic songs like Bob Dylan’s “To make you feel my love” and “Use Somebody” by the Kings of Leon. As always the standards were exceptional and the parents and pupils who attended had another great evening at our school.
