Both Year 10 GCSE Music classes went to LIPA (Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts) to take part in a percussion workshop with an graduate from LIPA. Whilst at LIPA students also had a tour of the university seeing the cutting edge technology and fantastic facilities such as dance studios, music practice rooms and studios and the Paul McCartney Auditorium. Once finished at LIPA we moved on to the Beatles Museum on the docks and learnt about the music of the Beatles in preparation for their GCSE music course. Overall, the trip was a huge success and the students really enjoyed their time.’
