Music: Scholars’ Supper Welcomes New Talents
Nine talented Music Scholars recently enjoyed a night out in Eastbourne with Bede’s Director of Music, Louise Morris, Deputy Director of Music, Robert Scamardella and Roy Hilton, Bede’s venerable jazz master.
It was a wonderful occasion to set aspirations high and ensure that the new Music Scholars felt part of a family, able to enjoy being part of the Bede’s community.
Adding an extra-special touch were some returning Alumni, including 2015 leaver Sally-Ann Wild.

It was an evening of great fun: everyone enjoyed delicious home-made pizza and dough balls and – predictably – discussed music amongst many other things, including concert schedules, the forthcoming tour and what is expected of a Music Scholar at Bede’s.
The dinner was brilliant way of introducing the year to this important group of young people: they will give so much to the life of the school in the coming months and years and we all felt it an important gesture to make them feel valued and, importantly, cared for.
