Just before Christmas we went on a trip to a recording studio in the Jewellery Quarter. Our students did an amazing job of recording a track, which they'd prepared together with professionals who spent an afternoon each week at our centre for a term. Our students had previously recorded the beats, then a few of them wrote and recorded a combined rap of verses and a chorus: "Lesson Learnt". The rap gives advice from the students' own experiences of improving at our school! The others planned and filmed a music video to record at the studio, which shows those who were rapping in the booth as well as others joining in the chorus or dancing. Us staff members had a lot of fun starring in a few shots, too! It was great to see what the students could achieve together as people believed in them and invested time with them.
