The event came just days after Jade’s time on BBC talent contest The Voice came to an end, as her coach, Kylie Minogue, decided not to take her through to the live finals.

But the artist, from Rushmere, has showed her determination to forge a career in the music industry with her latest performance, which was well received by students.

Year 11 pupil Georgia Cousins said: “It was really good, everyone really enjoyed it and everyone was up on their feet having a good time.

“When people get knocked down they need to get back up and carry on, and that’s the impression she gave out.”

Polly Bennett, who is in Year 10, added: “I thought it was really good. It was acoustic and it was nice to hear her voice in that.”

Oona Carlin, headteacher at the school, said: “Even though Jade didn’t reach the final selection for The Voice, she is clearly very resilient, ambitious and talented.

“She is a great role model for our pupils – it is an important message, especially for girls, to realise that you can overcome disappointment and carry on with the kind of energy, enthusiasm and determination that Jade shows.”

  • Hopefully now she's off the show you might stop going on about her. She's not a celebrity and there are far more important things going on - I'm sure most people couldn't care less if she is planning to sing outside the toilets at Major's Corner next Monday, or whatever else she may have planned!
