TALENTED students have taken to the stage for the first major production at one of Suffolk’s newest schools.
Youngsters at Saxmundham Free School performed hit 1980’s film Fame recently.
The 30 students aged from 11-14 delighted audiences with their version of the musical, which was directed by Alan Parker and chronicles the lives of several teenagers who attend a New York school for those gifted in the performing arts.
Jenny Shervington, head of creative arts at Saxmundham Free School, said: “It was absolutely fantastic. The students were brilliant and thoroughly enjoyed it.
“As a new school it was the first time we had ever done something on this scale, so there was quite a lot of pressure.
“But the students sang and danced superbly and were really committed and confident. There was a lot to do but they were outstanding.”
Saxmundham Free School opened in September at the site of the town’s former middle school in Seaman Avenue.
