We will be having a short meeting straight after school on Thursday 3rd November in CGG to go through the final arrangements and reminders. All students going on the Hamilton trip must attend this meeting. It should only take 15 minutes. 

Please contact me if thereโ€™s a reason why you cannot attend. 

During half term, please have a look at the information on this website. It’s free, but you will need to register to access the resources. I’m certain you will all love seeing the show, but you will love it even more if you have some prior understanding of the story line and who’s who. Take 15 minutes to get your head around the plot and the main characters. 

Thank you. We are really looking forward to taking you all ๐Ÿ™‚

Congratulations! Another fab MusicFest!

Well done and thank you to everyone who performed in MusicFest this week. It was lovely to see such a variety of perfomances from soloists, duos and groups, and it’s great that our students continue to create music together regardless of age differences. Special thanks to our tech team and everyone else who helped on the night and behind the scenes.

Listen to the lyrics in the chorus of Creep below if you don’t get it!

Radiohead are an English rock band formed in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, in 1985. The band consists of Thom Yorke (vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards); brothers Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments) and Colin Greenwood (bass); Ed O’Brien (guitar, backing vocals); and Philip Selway (drums, percussion). Radiohead’s experimental approach is credited with advancing the sound of alternative rock.

Though they achieved greater commercial and critical success with later albums, “Creep” remains Radiohead’s most successful single. It was named one of the greatest debut singles and one of the greatest songs by the American Rolling Stone magazine.
