Drop Down Day



On our Life Skills drop down day an upcoming band, “The Shades,” delivered messages on Online Safety, Cyber Bullying & Discrimination . The Shades are a 4 piece pop / rock band from all over the UK. They kicked off 2017 by headlining the O2 ABC in Glasgow and since then Capital FM named them as the UK’s best unsigned band. Their sound is influenced by The Beatles & Queen as well as modern influences such as Mcfly and 1 Direction. After amassing over 2 million YouTube views they are due to support Jessie J on some of her tour dates next year. We were delighted to welcome them to our school and have received fantastic messages of support from parents, pupils and staff.

The band manager emailed into school to say “how lovely the staff and pupils were” and they “have been completely inundated with positive feedback from pupils (and even parents) on social media which is lovely to read”.
