In July, our GCSE music students were once again invited down to Stanton Vale school for children with special educational needs, to take part in their annual Arts Week. Our students filled the school minibus with as many instruments they could take (plus themselves!), including some of the Japanese taiko drums we currently have on loan to us. After performing a few songs for the Stanton Vale students, we invited them to join us on stage for some rhythm work using the taiko drums. It was fantastic to see both our students and the Stanton Vale students making music together, and we hope to be invited down again next year!
