Writhlingtons Got Talent

November 1st, 2015 | Creative Arts School News

Writhlington School has stacks of talent and this was clear to see at the preliminary rounds of the popular ITV entertainment show Britain’s Got Talent.

Students across many year groups signed up for their 5 minutes with the judges hoping to impress and be taken through to meet the panel at the live televised auditions.

This year the popular TV show travelled across the UK including Exeter, Plymouth and the Channel Islands talent spotting, before stopping off in Frome for an extravaganza of hidden talent by it’s residents and local hopefuls.

Year 10 student Charlotte Hocking was hoping to impress them when she took to the stage to sing “If I Ain’t Got You” by Alicia Keys.

After her audition she said: “I am glad I did it and I think it went well. I love the song and it feels comfortable to sing it. I really want to be a singer when I leave school, so I hope I do well.”

Mother, Beverley Vandyke, said she was really proud of Charlotte.

She said: “Singing runs in the family and my older daughters have auditioned for BGT and X-Factor. We came along today to support Charlotte and she did really well, I am very proud and hope she does well.”

Other students from Year 7 to Year 13 dazzled the judges with an array of acts including gymnastics, singing and dancing and now eagerly await the results in the Spring.
