Music has traditionally been a very strong subject at The Royal School whether in the Primary or Senior School. All students in Years 7 – 8 study music and there are ample opportunities to perform both within school and outside. In Year 9, it becomes a GCSE Option choice.
The music department occupies a suite of dedicated rooms – one set up with a high quality sound system and one with computers running notation/sequencing software and keyboards. The department enjoys the support of a talented group of visiting music staff who bring a wide range of expertise with them. Students are encouraged to join various music ensembles and choirs and have the opportunity to perform both in school and at outside venues such as the LG Arena.
The final week of term will be a celebration of well-being through a host of character development activities. The week begins with the senior school sports day on Tuesday, 9 July.
On Wednesday, 10 and Thursday, 11 July, students will take part in a variety of house competitions and activities that will give them an opportunity to enhance a variety of skills such as leadership, teamwork, problem solving, creativeness and resilience through enterprise, drama and STEM activities to name but a few. During these days, students will also be off site taking part in a number of different activities that encompass our school values such as supporting community projects in the surrounding area and taking to the outdoors for some outdoor and adventurous activities. The school year is brought to a close on Friday, 12 July, with our final house competition. Students will need to use all their skills they have been developing throughout the year and during the week for this end of year extravaganza. We can’t tell you too much about the day as it will spoil the surprise!
