Mud, Blood and Music Composition Project


The ‘Mud, Blood and Music Composition Project was a composition competition which attracted entries 7 secondary schools across the county, hosted by Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust. The stimulus for this project was the movie of the battle of the Somme (1916) and the composer Laura Rossi who was commissioned by the Imperial War Museum to write a soundtrack to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the battle 10 years ago.

Year 10 and year 12 students from Sponne wrote compositions to accompany the silent film. The school was invited to select finalists for a workshop and awards evening where the best entries were played and discussed with Laura Rossi.

The standard of work from all of our students was excellent. The finalists from Sponne were Penelope Tollervey, Lizzie Rowlands, Holly~Alice Morton, Jamie Holman, Emily Rogers, Annie Wilkins, Susie Clark, Lizzie Elphick and Sussanna Gough. Three pieces from each key stage were shown to the audience including Emily and Penelope for KS4 and Susie and Sussanna for KS5. At the end of the evening the prize winner for the entire project was announced to be Penelope (Y10).

A-Level Photography


A big Thank you to the PFA for funding a new set of studio lighting primarily for our A-level photography students. It has replaced some old equipment that was partly broken and clumsy to use. The new equipment has been a pleasure to teach with, and the students are already getting to grips with it, and enjoying the variety and quality of lighting effects they can now achieve. It really has enhanced the quality of photos coming out of the studio, and it is easy and safe to use. The Year 12’s are currently working on a portrait project and are experimenting with different light set ups to achieve a range of dramatic lighting effects inspired by the great portrait photographers of the 1950’s, and theirglamourous film star shots.

The lighting is also very portable so will be able to be used for other purposes around the school, and for outside shoots.

Thank you PFA!

Ms Turton
