Battle of the Bands Success

Battle of the Bands 2018 has been a huge success with three Clifton bands competing against bands from Rawmarsh, Oakwood and St Bernards.  Although we lost to the outstanding Rawmarsh Y10 band ‘Shotgun in Case’, our pupils pushed themselves to new levels and have really developed their resilience as musicians.

We also had guest performances from Deniz and Alex in Y10 whilst we counted the votes.

Our Y10 event management team were truly brilliant running backstage.  Y10 pupil Charley Bell was the event manager and has been the sole point of contact with Rotherham Hospice, and we raised well over £400 for the hospice in ticket sales and donations!

Thank you to everyone who came along to support.  We are incredibly proud of all pupils involved – they really are a credit to the school and a pleasure to work with.
