Howard Junior School took a day off from its own curriculum to recreate its own School of Rock with the help of legendary Status Quo drummer Jeff Rich on Monday.

School headteacher Gregory Hill said: “Jeff contacted me out of the blue as he was in the area and I jumped at the chance to have him here at the school with us.

“The whole day was based on the Hollywood version of the School of Rock, which stars Jack Black, and it gave children a tremendous opportunity.”

Children and staff dressed up, while every child played a percussion on the drums with Jeff.

Youngsters also produced music on Garage Band using their IPAD’s.
