Congratulations to Miss Sherwood, Head of Performing Arts, and all the pupils and staff for producing a fantastic, upbeat entry into the Jamie Cullum song competition.

Singer songwriter Jamie Cullum ran a competition with Yamaha to win his Yamaha grand piano. In response, Miss Sherwood wrote the lyrics and music to a brand new song entitled 'All We Need Is the Music' and co-ordinated our school musicians, vocalists and peripatetic music teachers to perform it individually. In a short space of time, the feel-good song and a lively video were created, featuring pupils and members of staff.

“I'm so proud of everyone who took part,” said Miss Sherwood. “I think it's a really lovely thing to have been a part of in this strange time we find ourselves in.”

The competition has now closed and the winner will be contacted by 30th November 2020 and announced on the Jamie Cullum page on the Yamaha website and via Yamaha’s social media channels shortly afterwards.

Miss Sherwood would like to thank the pupils and staff at Archbishop Temple School. Special thanks goes to Mrs Brown, Mr Charlton, Jamie C (Year 11), Tom Hale, Rabin Joseph and Daniel Sherwood.
