Music

The Arts - MusicMusic features strongly in the life of the school. In addition to listening to music, singing and learning to play tuned and untuned musical instruments, children are encouraged to create their own music.

Peripatetic music teachers visit school to teach brass, guitar, woodwind, string, percussion and keyboard. Most of our lessons now take place in the Youth Building adjacent to the Pontesbury library, children are escorted there by their music teacher or a member of staff. This is a far superior venue to the work spaces we have available in school.

The school has its own choir (led by Mrs Lesley Holder) that performs widely in both the local community and further afield. Venues have included:

St. George’s Church, Pontesbury;
Minsterley Methodist Church;
Shrewsbury Abbey;
St. Chad’s Church, Shrewsbury;
The West Midland Show;
The Darwin Shopping Centre, Shrewsbury;
The National Indoor Arena, Birmingham;
and the Wembley Arena.

Each year the choir performs commendably in the Minsterley Eisteddfod and has won several awards for its performance. In addition, many of our children have won individual awards for their talents.
