Ratcliffe College’s Singing Star

All School News | 03.03.2020

Singing star in the making, Richard Pullan has won multiple senior awards after attending a music competition in February.

Richard took park in Music Fest at English Martyrs School in February and certainly impressed the judges across multiple categories. In the junior age group he came 1st in the Advanced Stage and Screen solo category.

Not only this, but Richard also took part in the adult (18+) events and won the Advanced Stage and Screen and Advanced Arts Solo categories. It is unusual for a 17 year old to place in the advanced adult categories, but Richard won both of them!

Headmaster Jon Reddin spoke about Richards’s recent success, saying: “This is an outstanding achievement and the College is extremely proud of Richard. He has a wonderful talent, and it’s great to see him continue to strive to develop his talent and share it with others. He is a fine role model for our musicians and indeed all students and we can’t wait to hear him perform again.”

Music at Ratcliffe gives our students a superb wealth of opportunities to take part in the broad programme of activities across the school.  Students learn many skills as well as having the enjoyment of working with like-minded musicians.  The many ensembles and choirs work across the different years, strengthening the community atmosphere of the school. In addition to these activities, our students can also choose to have individual music lessons with specialist teachers.
