There are a wealth of opportunities within the music deparment for pupils to get involved in both instrumental groups and choirs.
Pupils who learn an instrument in school are expected to join an appropriate group from those mentioned below. We encourage any pupils who learn an instrument outside of school to also join an appropriate group.
The school has a great tradition of choirs, and all pupils are encouraged to join the many vocal groups we have to offer. No audition is necessary for any of the choirs, just an enjoyment of singing! Choirs will rehearse and perform at two concerts throughout the year, and many smaller groups of singers are often given the opportunity to perform at various events within school and the local community.
If you would like any more information regarding our extra curricular opportunities please get in touch with Miss Shields in the Music department.
Rehearsals are run by a conductor/staff member/pupil(s) and take place on the same day, in the same venue every week. To find days and times our groups/choirs rehearse, please look at the lists below:
