Move It 2017

What an incredible Weekend at Move It 2017!  Students from across the school joined us at the UK's top Dance and Musical Theatre exhibition at the London Excel centre.  At our stand we met hundreds of aspiring young performers whilst our students watched performances from some of the UK's finest institutions.  On Saturday our Sixth form students took to the stage to wow the audience with our performance of Under Pressure - a piece inspired by the Syrian refugee crisis created by Leanne Hughes with vocal arrangements by James Grimsey.  The performance received incredible feedback from some of the leading schools in the UK and our students can be very proud of the work.
