Thrilling, buzzing and a stonking success!
Our Summer Celebration Concert was just that - a wonderful celebration of the hard work all our young musicians have put in over the last year. The concert showed off both the amazing talent and incredible potential these young people have and I was thrilled to be a part of such a positive and diverse evening. The Year 7 item, in particular, was a stonking success and I heard so many students absolutely thrilled and buzzing (quite literally for the brass players!) after their performance. I'm sure it will be something they will always remember - I know I will!

The Summer concert a few weeks ago was a brilliant demonstration of everything the music department is achieving, happy faces, amazing performance and partnership working with Brighton Music Service.

Massive thanks @alfiejukes_ for coming in to talk all things #songwriting to our Year 11 GCSE #music class recently & for performing one of his songs live! The Q&A afterwards on composition & life in the world of musical theatre went down very well #inspirational @VarndeanMusic https://t.co/Qjfb2eApca
