School Band

School Band


Once children reach Year 4, they are given the opportunity to learn a woodwind or brass instrument in school. Children who take advantage of this opportunity receive weekly free peripatetic lessons from our instrument teachers Mrs Rowlands (woodwind) and Mr Thelwell (brass). In addition to this, children who receive these lessons are also able to join our school band, giving them the chance to perform as part of a large group ensemble.


The band is led by Mrs Rowlands and practise once a week, learning a range of songs; from classical pieces by famous composers such as Mozart, to modern day, recognisable songs from film and television. There are many performance events throughout the school year, such as:


  • School Concerts
  • Wirral Music Festival
  • Concerts at Archbishop Beck
  • Training days at University of Liverpool
