The 16 to 17-year-olds began the project as part of their sixth form community service in September and have already put together a demo CD at the school's recording studio following the help of music tech teacher Lloyd Jones.
David Royse, guitarist and press officer for the group, said there were a large number of Wymondham High musicians, including rock and metal bands, DJs, and acoustic acts and the group was eager to find new artists to join the label.
'There are some recording studios about and rehearsal studios in Norwich, but there are not many people promoting young musicians. All of us are musicians and most of us play in bands, so we know how hard it is to get noticed,' he said.
The Slip Discs label launch took place on Friday with music from Go Public, Adelaide Cape, and DJ sets from Mafyah, Okota, and the Markie Collective.
The other record label members are Adam Beck, Flynn Green, Edmund Farrarr, James Pritchard, Adam Claydon, Ryan Webster,
Owen Taylor, and Ollie Barton-Wood.
