A HEREFORDSHIRE arts school has been rewarded for its dedication to music education with an awards double.

One Vision School of Arts, in Chapel Lane, Leominster, attended the Herefordshire Business Awards at The Three Counties Hotel and came away with two awards.

The school won the Covid Community Champion Award and the overall Outstanding Achievement of the Year Award for 2022.

One Vision has been running in the north Herefordshire town since 2018.


It offers musical theatre classes, acting, and vocal coaching. It also takes students through their London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art performance exams.

Created to provide the town and its surrounding areas with a wide variety of performing arts opportunities, the school looks to provide a local, and affordable alternative to the usual avenues into the industry.

The school has hosted masterclasses from a wealth of talent from the showbiz world including Hollywood actor Adam Garcia, Pop Idol finalist Gareth Gates, Britain's Got Talent winner George Sampson and West End leading lady Kerry Ellis.

Sharon Pocock, head judge of the awards and managing director of Kinder Pocock Digital Accountants said of the school at the ceremony on Friday, October 21: "We were blown away by their passion, their dedication and how much they are changing the lives of the young people that walk through their doors."


Owner Melissa Kings said that the school felt privileged to even be nominated and invited to attend the ceremony, but that to also win two awards was amazing.

She said: "There is an incredible amount of hard work from our team to enhance confidence and creativity, and create a safe space where our students can get lost inside their imaginations and just be themselves.

"We are proud of the work we do and the progress we are able to witness from our students."
