Barnsley Academy turned to environmental issues as inspiration for its entry in to this year’s Rock Challenge competition.

And the school saw its piece, entitled ‘Hexxus,’ take second place and seven excellence awards in the regional finals of the national competition.

‘Rock Challenge’ itself is led by the Be Your Best Foundation, using the performing arts to help promote healthy life choices, with this year’s regional final taking place at Production Park, Wakefield on Saturday (9th March).
