This afternoon Year 10 had a talk about mental health. Following this was a performance from the band The Mercians.

The band discussed how mental health can have an impact on a person’s life. The students asked questions such as “how do you have the confidence to perform in front of people?” which the band answered throughout the afternoon between their songs.

The Mercians are “bringing Indie back to the Midlands” with their 5 piece band. Playing a mixture of their own tracks and a cover or two they showed the students what you can achieve when you feel great in yourself.

It’s fair to say the students loved it!
