DANCE success: Many congratulations to the team of dancers from Brighton Hill Community School, who took part in Rock Challenge at the Guildhall Southampton. The team performed brilliantly and won this area’s heat.

They now move on to the next stage in Portsmouth. Well done to everyone who took part and to all the teaching staff from the school who were involved in this.
