City Schools Young Leaders Project


One of the City Corporation’s primary academies, Galleywall, hosted a singing workshop in March. Galleywall worked with students from the City of London Academy Southwark, the City Academy Hackney, the City of London Academy Islington, and the City of London School for Girls to plan and deliver a brilliant singing workshop for children from Galleywall and Redriff Primary. The children found the experience inspirational, and valued the chance to work with the young leaders at our secondary academies and independent schools to develop their singing skills. One student participant from the City of London Academy Islington commented: “it was an incredible experience. I didn’t realise just how much I would get out of it when we started back in September. It was great to work with other students from different schools and then to teach different groups of primary schools children. They were really enthusiastic! I definitely want to do it again next year.”
