The first stage of this year’s X Factor competition has taken place. Students didn’t have to brave the judges in person this year, but had to submit a video audition to Google Classroom. 24 students auditioned and the standard was very high. The shortlisting team have chosen 10 students to go through to the semi-finals. These students need to submit a second video, before 6 finalists are chosen. It is disappointing that we won’t be able to have the big event in the hall this year, but, like many other events, we have had to adapt the format of the competition so that it can be done safely.
Rest assured, there will still be a winner crowned this December and we hope to let students have a say in whose name goes on the trophy this year!
The successful semi-finalists are: representing Aidan, Chloe 11 Harrison and Neve 8 Davies; representing Cuthbert, Grace 11 Birdsall, Eddie 10 Jolly and Evan 10 Jolly; representing Oswald, Erin 10 Webster, Poppy 11 Davies, Ilana 10 Charlton, Francesca 7 Stevens and Milana 7 Sutton.
