Practise facilities are in use most days with pupils using them to develop skills, prepare for both instrumental and vocal exams and/or to form a Band.
Performance opportunities are given and pupils are encouraged to take part in events in school and in the community. One of our first opportunities is our Showcase Evening in the Autumn Term.
Each year pupils perform at Kirkburton church where we hold our Carol Service.
Every Christmas Musica Kirklees’ Staff Orchestra and/or Staff Rock Band are invited to come and entertain pupils. These concerts are great fun and informative, with the ensembles playing diverse repertoire and introducing the different musical instruments together with giving our pupils access to high-quality live music.
