Since the Rock Challenge and J Rock heats, three local Island schools have spent the last few months finalising their performances and will this week travel to Portsmouth Guildhall to compete in the prestigious Southern J Rock and Rock Challenge finals.
On Wednesday Stenbury Federation of Schools will take to the stage in front of a sold out audience for the J Rock competition before Ryde Academy and Sandown Bay Academy compete in Saturday’s Southern Premier Final.
Each final begins early in the morning giving the students an entire day to have fun, watch and support the other schools from across Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Dorset, Sussex, Surrey, Buckinghamshire, London and Hampshire.
Tickets are still available to purchase through Portsmouth Guildhall Box Office on 0844 847 2362 .
A National Final will be held at Milton Keynes Theatre on Monday 6th July. The three highest placing schools in the Southern Premier Final will qualify to this National Final to compete against teams from Scotland and the North of England in another specular celebration of youth creativity.
