Headmaster's Bulletin 23rd November 2018
Music took centre stage on Thursday when BBC Radio Northampton broadcasted live from school.
The focus of the broadcast was the Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust's (NMPAT) partnership work with local schools with its work with NSB being held up as an outstanding example. The broadcast consisted of a range of interviews with students and staff, followed by a short and typically inspiring performance, by Metalwork.
On the musical theme many congratulations to Edward Jennings from Y11 who has been named in the top 40 young drummers in the country for a fourth year in a row.
