Alumni

The roots of The Knights Academy of Performing Arts can be traced back to the 1950s . There are links with North West Kent and various scout bands that merged, however The Black Knights (which developed into the Knights Academy) itself was made up of 4 main groups, know as 'corps'.
Rochester Corps of Drums, Gravesham Corps, Kent Invicta and 11th Gravesend Scouts.
Rochester Corps of Drums, which later became Kingsferry Marching Band following a sponsorship deal, merged with Gravesham in 1988 to form Kingsmen who competed in DCUK.
Kent Invicta merged with 11th Gravesend Scouts in 1990 to form Marauder Corps, who competed in BYBA.
The Black Knights was an amalgamation of them all and went on to become one of the UK's most successful marching bands at that time.
Former members now run the Knights Academy.

"Music tuition that's fun and affordable."
