Extracurricular Music

It is a requirement that, if a student is learning an instrument, then he / she must attend the ensemble appropriate to his / her particular instrument at a time when the tutor feels that the student is at a level in which he/she may benefit from this. It is expected that all vocal students will attend a vocal ensemble at school. These ensembles are run by the full time music staff and peripatetic tutors, they include: Guitar Group, Sax Group, RnB Vocal Group, Clarinet Group, Key Stage 3 Band, Swing Band, Concert Band, Choir, Samba Band/Percussion Group and Musical Theatre Group.

These activities take place before and after school between 3.40 pm and 5.00 pm. These groups incorporate students from each year group within the Academy. So far they have proved extremely beneficial to the students. Firstly, it increases the student’s confidence on their instrument and secondly it allows students from all years to come together and benefit from ensemble work as opposed to solo work. Additionally, it trains the students for the major concerts which are held during the course of the year.

*NB at present the extra-curricular offering is reduced and timings are modified due to the current staggered timetable and start and end to the day
