Students at Kettering Buccleuch Academy who had shown excellent attendance were treated to a visit from current X Factor contestant Ebru Ellis yesterday.
Ebru, who made it through the Six Chair Challenge in Simon Cowell’s Overs category at the weekend, performed in front of more than 500 pupils and shared the message of the importance of working hard at school.
Ebru’s visit was organised by the acadedmy as part of its programme of rewards for students whose attendance is excellent.
The 27-year-old singer also took time to visit primary school students and sign autographs.
Year 12 student Taylor Tillin said: “It was great to see Ebru come into our academy.
“We are really lucky that events such as this are organised for students to reward them for their attendance.”
