The David Capp Memorial Bursary was set up last year by trustees at the Norfolk County Music Festival as a way of honouring Mr Capp, who died of leukaemia after 13 years organising and developing the festival.

This term, Browick Road has been the first school to benefit from the initiative.

Clare Walker, the choir's singing teacher, said: 'The extra workshops have given them the chance to spend longer on practising skills including singing in parts and using body percussion - which they particularly enjoyed!'

To qualify for next year's bursary, schools must enter the 2018 Norfolk County Music Festival by January 8, 2018.
