Four students from the academy have been awarded the prestigious “Performing Arts Bursary” from the Rotary Club of Great Yarmouth and Haven after impressing in auditions. They demonstrated an impressive range of skills in vocals, piano and the clarinet that has clearly been backed up by hard work and dedication.

With a range of musicians from secondary and further education settings involved, we are proud to announce the success of Cameron, Jake, Toby and Cody. They were awarded their bursaries by Rotarian Keith Futter (President) and Rotarian Malcolm Bugge (Vice President) to the delight of staff and families. It is a fantastic opportunity that shows how Rotary Club is working with young people in the local area to support the arts.

Asked what they thought of the bursary Jake said:

"I am really grateful to be chosen for this award, I will use the bursary to purchase equipment needed to start recording my music."

Miss Ditcham said:

"I am extremely proud of the way that all our Venture musicians have embraced the audition process involved. The power of music is magical and we are delighted that the Rotary Club have been able to support our students aspirations."
