He’s taken on Piers Morgan, but can Jon McClure- lead singer of the band Reverend and the Makers- handle grillings by X26 and E26?
They may only be Year 8s, but they’re the next generation to challenge injustice and support when it’s right to ‘Fight the Power’. As well as curently raising funds to commerorate the Doncaster Suffragettes, they’re working to become young, poetic activists as they write their own verses for their ‘Fight the Power!’ expedition.
South Yorkshire star Jon, brings his expertise as a song-writer and poet, as well as having a First Class History and Politics degree! Jon has collaborated on lyrics with the Arctic Monkeys, whilst also having written the music for his own band who have had chart success with anthems such as Heavy Weight Champion of the World. From drawing festival crowds and packing out gig venues, to appearing on politics shows and Good Morning Britain, this guy has lots of wisdom to impart on our Year 8s. The man who said “When we see people like yourself fawning over Donald Trump, then we feel the need to stand up and say something,” will hopefully be inspiring our students to do the same.
Jon will be chatting with our students via Google Hangout (we’re sure he will have the same presence and ‘draw the crowds in’, despite Covid restictions) on Monday afternoon (7th December). Good Morning Britain will be quaking in their boots…or booking us for their next debate!
