CTS take part in Battle of the Bands

Published on Tuesday 08th May 2018

A group of Year 9 students from Corby Technical School recently took part in Kettering Science Academy’s Battle of the Bands.

KSA’s BTEC music students organised the event as part of their coursework and invited primary and secondary schools from across the Brooke Weston Trust to perform.

A group of Year 9 students were chosen to represent CTS at the event, having formed a band called ‘Aboulia’. They showcased their talents by performing a selection of songs including Seven Nations Army by The White Stripes. They also took part in the school’s talent show earlier this academic year.

Teacher Miss Fenner said 'The band have worked really hard to help each other learn and have put in extra hours after school. Their progress in their skill has been noticeable and they work really well together and have fun doing so. They organised themselves very quickly in order to make sure they were ready for the Battle of the Bands, and their efforts have been fantastic!' 

KSA Principal Mr Tony Segalini said: 'This event has been a wonderful way to bring all the schools together for the Brooke Weston Trust Ambition for All campaign by celebrating the ambition and talent of our students as a Trust. Well done to our BTEC students who have organised the whole evening, which was a great success and ran very smoothly on the night. I hope this is something we can continue to run in the future years and build upon.'
