On Wednesday 6th April we took 2 acts to Sunderland College to compete in the Search for a Star talent show. What a night and what a fantastic showcase of talent in Sunderland. There were 12 secondary schools participating.

Venerable Bede acts were awarded 2nd and 3rd place – a fantastic achievement! In 2nd place, the Runner-Up award went to Matthew, our Head Boy, who sang an arrangement of I’m Still Standing from Rocketman. In 3rd place, the Rising Star award went to Vennerz, one of our rock bands, performed Love Story with a twist – our talented drummer completed 2 Rubix cubes during the band’s performance!

Mrs Bonner, Head of Music, said “It was great to see such a variety of talent from across many different art forms and the performers clearly really enjoyed seeing each other schools’ performances as well as feeling a great sense of achievement about their own performance. I am so proud of our pupils – they are extremely committed and talented and have worked hard to prepare for this event. To secure 2 of the top 3 places is an amazing achievement and we are all delighted with the results. It has been a very rewarding experience.”

Mr Exley, Assistant Headteacher, said “The wealth of talent attending Sunderland Search for a star is incredible. Given this high standard, we are incredibly proud to have not one, but two acts finish in the top three for the evening.”
