Thought for the week

Engaging and encouraging discussion, debate and discourse.

It's only Rock 'n Roll, but I like it!

Inspired this week by legendary music festivals, rock and roll royalty and our school's very own muscial production of Bugsy Malone I am asking people to consider the power of music.

How is it that one song can change your whole day or even motivate you to change your entire life?

Many people have experienced the influence of music throughout their lives. It can make you laugh, make you cry, make you dance and be the soundtrack to falling in love. So what is it about the art of music that can move and motivate people in equal measure?

What else could bring 100 000 plus people of all ages from all around the world to a sometimes muddy but always glorious set of fields in rural England?

See what music can make our students do! Remember this class of 2013?
