On Sunday 15 May, senior pupils participated in the Musical Impact study, the first national survey profiling musicians’ physical and mental health. The study, running over four years, aims to improve the health and well-being of musicians studying and working in Britain. Students at the School took part in the Fit to Perform strand of the study, providing value data for the researchers. The survey is in two parts: an online questionnaire, followed by a physical assessment. The students all said that the experience was very interesting and prompted them to think about how they look after themselves. More information can be found here:http://www.musicalimpact.org/
