Jermain Jackman -- D* D* D*
Jermain Jackman is the latest star in a long line of greats to have studied at Sir George Monoux College. Jermain shot to fame in 2014 as the winner of BBC's The Voice UK, winning a £100,000 recording contract in a final watched by over 7 million people. He is currently recording at Universal Music, working with international stars such as Rudimental. Aside from music, Jermain is actively involved in politics, working as a Labour Youth Coordinator and advising Ed Milliband MP on youth politics. At Sir George Monoux College, Jermain excelled academically by gaining triple Distinction stars in BTEC Music and Distinction Grade 8 in Rock School Vocals. Jermain's examiners were moved to tears when he performed his final exam piece and ran out of superlatives to describe his performance. At the Student Awards Ceremony in 2013 Jermain scooped two awards: the "Music Student of the Year Award" and the "Rising Star Award". Jermain deferred his place to study in the USA at Berklee University, one of the world's foremost music schools, to compete on The Voice. Despite being incredibly busy, Jermain still finds time to visit Sir George Monoux College, regularly holding workshops with our Creative Performing Arts students.
