KGV student Lauren Smith secured a place in the boot camp stages this weekend, following a fantastic performance at the Manchester heats of this year’s X-Factor competition.  Lauren enraptured the live audience with her rendition of ‘American Boy’  and received four yeses from the judges.  

This is a fantastic achievement and we’re so proud of Lauren and everyone at KGV will be cheering her on in the next round.
