A GO-ahead school in Denby used the opening of a £1 million facility to show it has definitely got talent.
The new Expressive Arts building at John Flamsteed Community School was officially opened last week.
As part of the celebration, the Derby Road school held a ‘Flamsteed’s Got Talent’ competition.
It was won by year 11 singer/songwriter Josh Knight. He said: “Having this new building has helped me to be even more enthusiastic about studying and practising music, and given me confidence to perform and show my talents in front of a wider audience.”
Midday Firework, a band made up of year 11 students Matt Morley, Josh Toms, Harry Smith and Alex Wright, also took part in the competition.
They said: “The new block has meant wider opportunities to practise, play and perform.
“We all played before, but we have only got together as a band because of the new facilities.”
Anita Weddell, head of expressive arts, said: “The opportunities now on offer in music, drama and performance mean that the sky’s the limit for Flamsteed students.”
A bumper autumn fair was held after the opening of the new centre, with a wide variety of stalls and attractions.
