Funding Secured to Launch Rock School

We have recently received the exciting news that our Academy has been successful in securing Youth Music funding to run a ‘music school’ over a two year period.

Called the South West Durham Rock School, the project will commence during the autumn term; the aim is to provide young people with the opportunity to learn and play an instrument and to take part in musical performances alongside the chance to develop their skills in composing.

Taster sessions will be held at local secondary schools followed by weekly evening music sessions at King James. The Rock School will be able to accommodate up to 25 young musicians, aged between 11 and 18 years of age, and it will be completely free to attend. Watch out for further details as they unfold.
