Y8 Songwriting Workshop

On 13th June twenty of our Year 8 students had the opportunity to take part in a songwriting workshop led by Bethzienna Williams, a talented writer and vocalist best known for finishing third on last year's The Voice, in which she dueted with Tom Jones.

Bethzienna worked closely with the students to explore how we respond to powerful and contrasting emotions, related to the experience of conflict. Students came up with ideas around war and conflict to focus on the spirit of the Invictus games, with Bethzienna responding to their ideas to produce a song within an hour, which all students joined her in singing at the end of the workshop. It was a rare chance to be inspired by a professional songwriter and the students gained a huge amount from the experience.
