THE latest production from a Runcorn school has showcased students' creative talents.

A cast of more than 80 students took to the stage at The Grange Academy in Latham Avenue to perform The Sound of Musicals, a showcase of songs from 10 West End hit shows.

An audience of 250 people made their way to the event which saw students from the age of six to 16 working together.

There were solo performances of Bring Him Home and One Moment in Time.

One audience member said: "I am finding it hard to believe that what I just sat and watched was a show performed by children.

"Not only that, but the talent shown tonight is talent that is right on our doorstep."

The creative arts department at The Grange Academy has gone from strength to strength this year with a performance at the Town Hall, Shopping City and The Brindley Theatre as part of the prestigious Mayor’s Award and Duke of Edinburgh award ceremonies.

The Grange recently reintroduced GCSE dance to the curriculum and is looking to extend the creative offering for all students across the school.

Ian Critchley, principal of The Grange Academy said: "The dedication shown by the students and staff this year has been incredible.

"It truly demonstrates the talent we have in this school.

"There have been many positive changes this academic year and the ongoing exceptional work by the students and staff is really making a difference."
