Some of our very talented musicians in Years 9 and 12 recently participated in an exciting new project in conjunction with Newport-based ‘Operasonic’. With the guidance of award winning and internationally renown composer, Errollyn Wallen MBE, they created songs relating to their own ‘Newport Legends’. The workshop undertaken by our pupils is part of a wider project created in conjunction with the Riverfront Theatre which will play host to performances of special composed works in July 2017. Both Errollyn Wallen and Opersonic founder, Rhian Hutchings, were very impressed by the creativity of our pupils whose ‘legends’ ranged from family members to local characters. Congratulations to all those who took part.
Lutalo Muhammad, 2x Olympic Medalist, 2 x World Grand Prix, Commonwealth and European Champion for Tae Kwondo visited the school.

Following a question and answer session he met with Newport City Academy Football Club and had a selfie with Year 10 and 11 pupils.
