A News story by Ellena Schuster-Farrell 12 October 2017

Music is at the heart of academy life at Ilminster Avenue E-ACT Academy.

Pupils have the opportunity to learn a variety of musical instruments, perform in productions and even tour venues in Bristol with the academy orchestra or choir.

Ilminster, along with one other school, was recently featured in the short film, ‘Music Helps Us Learn’ funded by the Arts Council because of the innovative way in which music has been incorporated into the academy curriculum.

Enjoy this short video made with shots from the film – naturally, the soundtrack is by Ilminster pupils!
