At Durrington High School we love to celebrate the talents of our students and we are delighted when they share work and achievements that they are proud of with us, whether that is inside of school or outside.
Year 11 student Emma Olsen did just that when she emailed her self-penned and composed song ‘Colour’ to Mr Woodcock, who was really impressed with both the song and the initiative taken. Soon the song had been shared with many members of staff and posted on our social media pages, where it received many likes and shares.
Emma is a GCSE music student and ‘Colour’ is her original composition. She has been supported by music teacher Miss Maughan throughout her time at Durrington, enjoying singing in the school choir and also working with vocal coach Alex.

Emma also has ambitions to own her own business and is headed to Brinsbury College to study agriculture in September. She is also determined to continue to develop her music by writing her own songs and singing with student bands alongside this and we can’t wait to see where it takes her.
