On Thursday, 13th July, Shire Oak Academy welcomed the Orchestra.
"We feel extremely privileged to be hosting this very prestigious event". As many of our students as was possibly were involved in the day’s programme; through taking part in workshops, watching the orchestra rehearse or listening to them perform.
Final figures were impressive with just under 500 involved in the workshops (all of Year 7 and 8) plus the Jazz Orchestra. 420 audience for the concert. All of Year 7 plus every child who has instrumental lessons plus GCSE groups. Plus over 70 staff were involved.
We also live streamed it to the whole school so actually over1000 + watched it!!
