Ex- Lord Lawson Student and Britain’s Got Talent Contestant Jamie Lee Harrison returns to perform at the Academy

Thursday 19th May 2017

It was a delight to welcome ex Lord Lawson Student Jamie Lee Harrison back to the Academy on Thursday following his incredible performance on Britain’s Got Talent on Saturday evening.

Jamie was a student at Lord Lawson from 2004 to 2011. Since leaving the Academy he has continued to follow his dream of becoming a successfully singer/ songwriter. His latest achievement has been receiving a standing ovation from the BGT Judges, including outstanding feedback from Head judge Simon Cowell for his fantastic performance of REM Everybody Hurts.

Year 7 were very lucky on Thursday to have Jamie perform and chat to us about his experiences on the show. Both staff and students thoroughly enjoyed his performances and having the opportunity to chat to him about his experiences in the music business. Jamie is the same genuine and friendly student that attended Lord Lawson back in 2011, and he deserves all of the success coming his way. Jamie took the time to encourage and inspire students to follow their dreams and participate in the many performance opportunities available to them in the academy. The whole of Lord Lawson of Beamish Academy are fully supporting Jamie on Britain’s Got Talent and wish him the very best of luck in the coming weeks, we can’t wait to see how far he goes in the competition.
Best of Luck Jamie!!
