A finalist of popular TV talent show X-Factor performed for students of Newmarket Academy recently, as part of a performance workshop promoting online safety.

Sam Callihan played hits by Ed Sheeran and Stevie Wonder with the ‘Online Safety and Cyber Bullying School Tour’, which aims to deliver a clear online safety message while supporting the Teenage Cancer Trust Charity.

Nick Froy, headteacher, said: “It was fantastic having an X Factor star at the Academy. Sam delivered a very engaging performance whilst delivering a valuable and clear message. As always, the students and staff were outstanding, some a little starstruck, and really enjoyed it.”
