|In late August students from the school (including current & former students of OLSP and Siddal Moor) were featured several times on the Community Stage performing Adele, Emeli Sande, Artic Monkeys, The Ting Tings and more! Well done all!

|In July 2014 several vocal students of RSORAP (and Our Lady's RC Priary in Heywood) were featured on Mike Sweeney's show auditioning 'Let Her Go' by Passenger for his 'street band' project. Of course they sailed through, and went on to rehaearse and perform 'Hi-Ho Silver Lining' by Jeff Beck later that week. All live on air!
|Earlier this year Director Phil Reynolds was interviewed by former Rock Radio legend Mike Sweeney on BBC Radio Manchester to talk about Rochdale School of Rock and the history of rock music in the area. Phil discovered that MIke's band 'The Salford Jets' wrote and recorded at Rochdales iconic Cargo Studios - and got to meet BBC folk legend Mark Radcliffe too!
|Already this year students have won praise and awards (including trophies and medals!) at the Rochdale Youth Festival of Performing Arts.|
Our launch was featured in the Rochdale Observer and Rochdale Online, and the VIP launch concert was attended by the Mayor, Cllr Peter Rush (accompanied by the lady mayoress).
