Music runs through the veins of RGS Dodderhill in Droitwich Spa, the newest addition to the RGSW family of schools. All our girls have the opportunity to sing, learn an instrument of their choice, perform and participate in concerts and Drama productions.
We focus on harnessing musical talent and providing our pupils with the support to master their skills. Many of our students begin to focus on music at an early age giving them the time to flourish and develop. Our provision is led by Mrs Caroline Vinson and a team of Peripatetic teachers who inspire and encourage the pupils at every step of their musical journey. Two of our students who have reaped the benefits are Rosie Greenwood and Amelia Wood.
Rosie Greenwood has exceeded expectations by achieving her Grade 8 Musical Theatre, requiring a sophisticated level of musical appreciation and talent. She is a prominent member of Starbuck Theatre, which plays to her passion for the Stage and Singing, and has performed in many types of shows including ‘The Addams Family’, ‘Bugsy Malone’, and more recently as Higgins in ‘My Fair Lady’. She is a high soprano in the Senior and Chamber Choir at RGS Dodderhill. In her spare time, Rosie is a prolific songwriter.
Amelia Wood has received a Distinction in Grade 8 Flute, an outstanding achievement! She is now preparing to sit the Grade 8 Violin. Amelia inspires many of our younger pupils and outside of school she plays with the Worcestershire Youth Strings and the Worcestershire Youth Orchestra, regularly attending Suzuki Strings workshops. Last term Amelia joined the orchestra for the outstanding RGS Worcester production of Les Miserables.
Both girls have performed solos at Birmingham Town Hall at prestigious concerts and represented RGS Dodderhill on many occasions around the region. These achievements are just the beginning of their journeys and we are excited to watch their future developments.
