Rose Hill School sing for Tom Chaplin
Rose Hill School today welcomed Tom Chaplin to judge the first House Music Competition. All three of the school’s houses performed and Grange House were lucky enough to be crowned the winners with a fantastic rendition of YMCA.
Tom gave all the singers feedback on their performances before awarding the trophy. He then performed two songs from his new album ‘Twelve Tales of Christmas’ accompanied by Rose Hill School, Head of Music, David Everist.
Tom then kindly answered questions from the pupils. Pupils learnt that his favourite album is the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band; Keane was named after a lovely old lady called Cherry Keane who used to come and watch the band perform; his favourite instrument is the piano; Tom recorded his first song aged three on his tape recorder and he has released over 100 songs to date and hopes to release more in the future.
New Head Emma Neville said “This has been such a fantastic event the House Music Competition has enabled our three houses to work together, cementing team spirit, confidence and collaboration as well as developing presentation skills. To have Tom here judging has been very inspirational for the children and helps them to understand that hard work and determination from a young age can pay off”.

When we found out this year's Junior Production was 'Mary Poppins', we felt excited about what part we would get and how rehearsals would go. Rehearsals started straight away and we realised it wasn't going to be as easy as we thought! It was going to be tough and we would need to work very hard!

On Thursday, 9 November Year 7 went on an Art trip to the Towner Gallery in Eastbourne. After a bus journey to Eastbourne College we had a delicious lunch in their canteen. We then walked a short distance to the Towner Gallery which is located right next to the College. It wasn’t hard to miss as there was an amazing mural painted on the side of the building, in all sorts of shapes and colours, celebrating the Towner’s 10th Anniversary.
