Past pupils: where are they now?

Since its establishment in 2001, some 6,000 students have been through the doors of BIMM.

Some have gone on to forge high-profile careers.

THE KOOKS

The guitar band fronted by Luke Pritchard saw their first album, Inside In/Inside Out reach number two in the UK with follow-up, Konk, topping the chart.

They have sold two million copies to date and embarked on several sold-out tours.

After a change of line-up, Pritchard says the band are close to completing their third album.

KATE WALSH

The English singer became the first unsigned performer to top the iTunes chart, with her second album, Tim's House, achieving this feat. Since graduating from BIMM, Walsh has released four acclaimed albums to date.
