James Venables

RTFL Cast (11)

Jamie is currently preparing for his Grade 5 ABRSM violin exam and he plays in the school Symphony Orchestra.  He sings in the Schola Cantorum and in the Senior Choir.

Jamie enjoys an audience, whether delivering a speech as part of the inter-school Chatterbox Festival, or acting on stage.  He is rehearsing for the school production of “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” in which he plays Neville Longbottom.

Jamie has a great imagination and enjoys immersing himself in books or online skirmishes on his Playstation.  If he is not a professional musician when he is older, he thinks he might make an excellent professional gamer!

Jamie is 13 years old and is in Grade 7 at St John’s Prep.  He loves listening to a variety of types of music and plays the violin and the electric guitar.
