BBC Radio Merseyside - Jermaine Foster

I am over the moon to say we have been awarded First Place (Gold Medal) in Popcorn Film Festival for our scene from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
I am so proud of all of our kids for taking part in the competition. We also had a fantastic scene from our younger classes who brought the story to Snow White to life! What a fantastic reward for everyone's incredible hard work over this past few months in Lockdown! I am so proud of you all!

West End Star Musical Masterclass
April 19th 2020
Due to the COVID-19 lockdown, we have had to find new ways of teaching and with all the theatres around the country closed there is no more West-End. Therefore, we were very fortunate to get current Matilda and original London Hamilton cast member Christopher Tendai to do an online masterclass with our Diverse kids.
We had two fantastic online workshops this morning from Christopher, which ended with our students having a Q+A.
A massive thank you to all the kids and parents who took part as well a massive thank-you to the wonderful Christopher Tendai giving our students some incredible advice and tips!
