On Sunday 2nd July, teachers, family and friends, all gathered in the Quad to watch the Jazz Afternoon. There were successful performances from all groups, with impressive soloist numbers by Hannah Young, Natasha Strange, Molly Doherty and Bethan Kelly. Big Band opened and closed the show with brilliant renditions of many famous tunes, ranging from ‘Respect’ featuring Charlotte Tuffill to ‘Uptown Funk’. Saying goodbye to our Upper Sixth Leavers was emotional for all and we would like to thank them for everything they have contributed to the school over the years. Don’t worry though, because it was clear that the music department is left in safe hands with plenty more talented musicians coming through!
