As you will have seen, the Government is encouraging secondary schools to consider a partial return for Year 10 and Year 12 students from Monday 1st June 2020. Our view continues to be that it is important that we take appropriate, extensive and considered actions to assure the safety of all members of our school community to make the right decision at the right time.

Students Inspired by The Young Americans

October 2019


Young Americans, Dylan Stiles, Giorgi Nowicki, Ryan Castro and Marley Armstrong, pictured here were accompaniedand by their Tour Manager, Brooke Thompson.

Four members of The Young Americans Performing Arts Group, accompanied by their Tour Manager, have travelled all the way from the USA to visit King James to meet the staff and students they will be working with in February.

The organisation, which was founded by Milton C. Anderson in 1962, is dedicated to the promotion of understanding and goodwill among people throughout the world through music, dance, performance, academic education and cultural interaction among their audiences.

Members are accepted into the organisation based upon their talent and their interest in helping other students around the world to attain self-confidence, self- esteem and respect for others through music, dance and performance. They follow the philosophy that music brings people together for many purposes: teamwork, respect, accomplishment, caring, self discipline, a sense of self worth and much more, which are all taught in their workshop.

There will be a group of 25 Young Americans visiting King James for three days in February 2020 to work with students in Years 7-9, Sixth Formers and members of RTS Theatre Group at King James. Students will take part in a variety of workshops, which will culminate in a spectacular show on the evening of the 4th. Tickets will be soon be available for the Young Americans show, which will include performances by King James students during the second half of the show.
