Students have wowed an online audience with their magic, singing, art and more in their latest school talent show

The King Alfred School Academy Students produced an array of incredible performances in the online event.

There were student musicians, singers, artists, comic magic tricks and art work, and much much more.

The TKASA Talent Show is an annual tradition which is usually held as a performance evening with a panel of guest judges. 

This year it went ahead virtually with a judging panel which consisted of Vocal Coach and TV Presenter, Mark Delisser, BBC Radio Somerset Presenter, Claire Carter, and writer and composer Stuart Brayson – writer and composer. 

Others were West End actors , Karl Queensborough and Simon-Anthony Rhoden, and the street artist John Doh.

Charlotte Biggs, one of the coordinators for the event, said: “We have seen some absolutely incredible talent on show.

“We had so many entries we had to select a Top 5 and create a Visual Arts category. 

“In addition to our students, we have very talented members of staff, and we added a special category ‘Staff Entries’. 

“This ranged from a comical magic trick, art work and a department sing along! 

“I have been so impressed with the level of talent we have here at TKASA, both students and staff!

“We are also very grateful for the time and feedback our judges offered.”

The King Alfred School Academy (TKASA) has had a tremendous few years and is soaring in exam results, curriculum provision, pastoral support and with its high-performing school-based sixth form.

TKASA is part of The Priory Learning Trust.
