A number of Chorlton High School students interviewed Fatima Whitbread as part of the BBC School Report.
Last half term saw Chorlton High School host its first Battle of the Bands Competition. The evening saw 5 bands fiercely fight for the prize of a day in a professional studio to record a track of their choice. The judges Mr Casey and guest judge Damon Gough (Badly Drawn Boy) announced Zephyr as the winners, with Molly and the Cellar Boys winning the audience vote.
Zephyr and Molly and the Cellar Boys worked very hard to compose a song which they then recorded at Airtight Production Studios alongside a professional studio engineer, and both bands produced an excellent track.
Well done to all of the pupils involved in the competition for an excellent night!
Here is an extract from each of the groups recording session.

Several pupils from Chorlton High School recently took part in the Extra Mile Project. The aim of the project was primarily to broaden the horizons of the students and to develop a culture of achievement and belonging. The development of different skills will assist their learning and improve their engagement in lessons. Here is an extract from the video they created as part of the project.

Last half term, a group of Y9s worked on a radio drama project in their English lessons, and produced scripts for a short radio drama on the theme of war. Their brief was to imagine they were a poet, known for being inspired by the experiences of soldiers and civilians affected by war, who had been asked to try their hand at a new medium, the radio play, and commissioned by BBC Radio 4 to write a programme with this theme.
Students listened to an example of the format, the recent afternoon play All Quiet on the Western Front, discussed ways to utilise the potential of the radio medium, invented convincing characters and planned and plotted their own scenes. Following these lessons, they went into the school’s recording studio and acted out their drama in groups.
The students have produced moving, thoughtful and sensitively written drama, which focuses on a very wide range of contexts and experiences of war and conflict. We hope you will have a listen, and will enjoy what you hear!
