Headlands School’s Rock Challenge team showcased their 2017 entry by performing at Bridlington Spa as part of the senior heat of the competition.

There were 70 pupils in the school’s team this year with performers, puppeteers and stage crew all playing their part with great commitment and skill.

Staff and pupils spent three hours creating the face paint and hairstyling which added the finishing touches to the overall visual effect.

Their performance, which uses the circus metaphor to explore the idea of a dictatorship and the absence of personal freedom, was very well received by the judges who gave them awards of excellence in the categories for Visual Enhancement, Costuming Character, Soundtrack, Stage Crew, Drama, Entertainment, Performance Skill and Video Performance.

All the team now feel ready to take on the other teams at the Northern Premier Final which takes place on Saturday, July 1, at Grimsby Auditorium.

David Stamper, associate assistant head, said: “We are really proud as a school of all the students and staff that are involved in Rock Challenge.

“We are all really looking forward to the Northern Premier Final in July and would like to thank the community for their support, especially Lloyd Dowson.”
