I hope that most of you will have seen Monoux in the news last year, basking in the glory of having a new famous ex-pupil. Jermain Jackson, winner and star of TV show The Voice. Jermain had only recently left the school. I am pleased to say that he returned for the school Awards Ceremony as entertainment and was much enjoyed. Jermain is not just a pretty voice, he is going to university to study politics and music. The college has a very strong music and performing arts faculty but combines these areas with high academic achievements.
