Enriching Learning

The Music Department currently facilitates the provision of additional instrumental lessons in school using Wigan Music Service. This enables pupils to have the opportunity to learn a music instrument on a one-to-one basis. Pupils are encouraged to enter external exams to help mark their progress and examination boards used include ABRSM, Rock School and Trinity. Pupils taking lessons in school are actively encouraged to participate in the extra-curricular activities to help further develop their performance skills.

The Music Department offers a range of extra-curricular activities; some are open to all, some require specific skills. Ensembles which meet on a weekly basis currently include the SJF Singers and Ukulele Club. Pupils are also given the opportunity for extra study in Theory and GCSE workshops. In addition to providing opportunities to perform, the Music Department also aims to provide opportunities for pupils to watch musical productions and concerts by professional musicians.
