Students at Thomas Bennett Community College celebrated the end of the school year with a wonderful Summer Music Concert.



Held in the schools purpose built theatre the evening was a huge success with over 20 students showcasing their musical talent by singing and performing live in front of family and friends. 

A staff member commented:

“Each and every student had worked hard in the run up to the evening to perfect their performance and it was clear to see.  The talent in the room was absolutely outstanding. “

The concert was hosted by the schools Head Boy and Girl who did a fantastic job of introducing each act with pride and enthusiasm. 

With a range of live musical instruments being played by the students from keyboard, guitar, drums and much more the talent was incredible.  To accompany the live music, students also sang live and perfected their vocals brilliantly. 

The evening was a real celebration of young talent which couldn’t have been possible without the hard work and commitment of Mr Dobson, who teaches music at the school.  Having spent the last three weeks working hard to ensure that the evening ran smoothly, Mr Dobson has also worked one on one with each student that performed to ensure they felt confident and prepared for the evening.

When asked Stuart Smith, Headteacher said

“The Summer Music Concert was an absolutely fantastic way to end the school year.  The evening was full to the brim of musical talent and the students should be incredibly proud of their performances.  We are also very thankful to Mr Dobson for all of the hard work that went into preparing this outstanding event”.
