End of Year Showcase Week 2016

The end of the academic year saw the creative industries at Knowsley Community College put on a fantastic showcase week.

Taking place at our Roby Campus, the week included a hair and beauty show, performing arts show, music gig and art exhibition, in front of fellow students, parents and the general public.

The Performing arts student performed a devised piece entitled “Freedom: What did I do” looking at the issues around immigration and the refugee crisis. Learners researched and developed a verbatim style performance including music, dance, and drama.

Gill Banks Deputy Principal said of the performance,

Once again our Performing Arts students channelled their creativity to deliver an outstanding and thought provoking production. It was very emotional to watch and the students performed with such passion.

We are hoping that this production will be taken forward and used in Induction for the new academic year.

A brilliant music gig took place at the Picket and was organised by BTEC Extended Diploma students. It showcased work from Level 2 and Level3 students, featuring music from Amy Winehouse, to Stevie Wonder to Guns and Roses, to The Weekend.


The art exhibition showcased learner work across both Level 2 & 3 and included origami, iron filings, graphic design and textiles. The show also saw games and films designed by media students.


This year’s hair and beauty competition showed student designs and creations around the theme ‘vintage’ across level 1, 2 & 3. There was a prize giving for best in show across the levels which was judged by an industry practitioner. The attention to detail from make up to costume really made it an exciting competition and set the standard really high for next year.
