QE had three students competing in the West of England Brass Band Championships in Torquay recently.

The standard of performance is always very high and most bands prepare their performance over weekly rehearsals for several months, so the participation of these students reflects high amounts of discipline and personal practice as well as musical ability.

We are very proud of our students whose results are below:

  • Archie Musselwhite (Cornet – Verwood Concert Brass) – Result 12th/ out of 20 bands in the 4th section

  • Jack Musselwhite (percussion – Verwood Concert Brass) Result 12th out of 20 bands in the 4th section

  • Tom Ward (percussion – Verwood Town) Result 3rd out of 14 bands (!!) in the Championship section

Thank You - Donation To Music

Very many thanks to Mrs Cathy Thompson for the very kind donation of a trumpet to the Music Department. This instrument will be used by future students and give them the great opportunity of playing in our bands and orchestra.’

Our Year 9 choir performed for residents at the Verwood Day Centre recently and they sounded amazing. We had super feedback from the audience and the organisers of the event and it was a delight to be asked to participate.

The Students performed 6 songs and were fantastic ambassadors for the School in this very worthwhile project.
