Visit from the Band of the Royal Regiment of Scotland

We were delighted to welcome the band of the Royal Regiment of Scotland to NBHS yesterday.  Some of our woodwind, brass and percussion pupils were lucky enough to spend the whole morning with the band, and they had an amazing experience preparing a concert to present to the S1s later in the day.

The band, ably supported by our pupils, played rousing renditions of film favourites, including Jurassic Park, Captain America, Chicken Run and Hairspray.  They sounded fantastic and was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone watching.

We are very grateful to the band for visiting NBHS – it truly was an unforgettable experience for many of our talented music pupils.
