The campus is LMA’s first outside Liverpool and will open to students in September.

Jenni, who has performed in prestigious venues including the Royal Albert Hall, described the appointment as an honour.

She said: “For me, this move is a chance to return to my roots; not only am I literally going back to the area where I grew up, but I’m also able to tap into my creativity and passion for music and the performing arts, and I can’t wait to get stuck in!”

LMA co-founder Richard Wallace said “We knew that Jenni would fit in perfectly and we have no doubt that she’ll play an instrumental role in taking LMA into a new era.”
