Out of School and Music Programmes

We have a mixture of out-of-school hours offerings as well as our in-school programmes.  Outside school hour programmes are user pay.

Orchestra
This is open to any student learning an instrument and practices are one lunchtime per week. This group has a wide range of both instruments and skill levels.  The Orchestra performs at school events throughout the year.  The school asks for a financial contribution towards the cost of employing our outside teacher for orchestra.
School bands
We have two bands, a development band and our senior band.  Auditions are required for these bands.  Both have one lunchtime practice per week. The bands perform at school events throughout the year. The school asks for a financial contribution to the cost of employing our outside teacher for the bands.
There are also some out of school activities available through third parties, who deliver programmes before and/or after school,  who can be contacted by the following means:
