Just before the end of last term, a group of year 10 students on the Prince’s Trust course – Achieve took part in an exciting workshop that involved digital technology, making music and designing t-shirts delivered by YUAF (The Youth Urban Art Foundation).
Students had the opportunity to work with professionals in the fields and learn to design and print their own t-shirts using different media and while in a purpose-designed bus use IT material to produce music tracks.
‘Each and every student surpassed expectation and participated in the session today. They are all talented, polite and enthusiastic individuals. As always it was a delight to spend time with them and watch their confidence and creativity bloom. They are a credit to Mr Ydri and the school.‘

‘I enjoyed it because it showed me how music producers make beats for the songs, I made my own beat that was fun. It gives an idea of what I could possibly do as a job. I have seen how music is made digitally.’
Luis (year 10 student)
‘The best part of the activity was when we got to create music and get to use a spray paint to make our own design. I enjoyed it because I got to use a computer to make music and then I got to show off in front of my mum.’
Ahmed (year 10 student)
