Accrington Academy was ‘rocking all over the world’ when former Status Quo drummer Jeff Rich gave students a musical masterclass.
With the famous rock band for 15 years, Jeff now visits schools, giving a first-hand insight into the music industry, as well as leading drumming workshops, with over 7,000 primary and secondary schools now visited.
During his visit to Accrington on Friday (20th April), Jeff took Year 7 students, plus selected music students from Year 8-13, through a drumming and percussion master class, with each student receiving an autographed souvenir postcard. 
Head of School, Miss Palmer commented: “Here at Accrington Academy, our aim is to provide our students with an ‘Education with Character and Jeff’s visit is the perfect example of the wide variety of experiences and opportunities that we offer.’
