At St Monica’s we aim to cultivate an excitement and interest in music, alongside the knowledge, understanding and skills to explore it further.
Musical Instrument Tuition
We work closely with Accent Music Hub to provide opportunities for pupils to learn a musical instrument. In Year 4, pupils have whole-class weekly hour-long lessons learning a musical instrument with one of Accent Music Hubs teachers. There is also a String Ensemble weekly session open to all year 3-6 pupils, and a Guitar lunch group of pupils who continue their guitar learning the year after their whole class lesson. Private music lessons can be organised with Accent Music and they are delivered in curriculum time within school.
Extra Curricular Music Opportunities
At St Monica's there is a school choir, who rehearse weekly after school for an hour. The choir rehearse for concerts at Christmas and in the Summer.
The Young Voices choir rehearse weekly at lunchtimes to prepare for the annual Young Voices concert at the MEN arena in Manchester. This is a favourite annual event for St Monica's pupils.
We have achieved The Music Ambassador Schools award where we attended a presentation ceremony at Warrington Town Hall where we received our certificate from The Mayor of Warrington. Have a look at a few of our other awards in the pictures at the bottom of this page.
