The Music Department at Withington Girls’ School aims to cultivate a lively, active and happy atmosphere involving as many pupils as possible whatever their standard or previous experience.

To achieve this, we aim to provide a wide range of activities in the Music Department to reflect pupils’ different tastes and standards.  We believe that extra-curricular music plays a vital role in our pupils’ education and development.

The extra-curricular programme offers an excellent platform for musically gifted pupils to continue their development and strive for higher standards of achievement in performance and composition. Pupils of every standard have the opportunity to develop their skills in teamwork, widen their repertoire and enhance their general musicianship whilst becoming more confident performers both in and outside school.

Last but not least, school rehearsals should be enjoyable and sociable events where everyone is there for one reason – to make good music.

Girls have the option to take part in the following musical extra-curricular activities on a weekly basis:

Mondays Senior Choir, Theory Class, Brass Ensemble, Harp Ensemble, ABRSM Aural Class, Clarinet Choir
Tuesdays Flute Choir, Stage Band, Senior Orchestra
Wednesdays String Group, Percussion Ensemble, Junior Choir, Chamber Ensembles, Folk Ensemble
Thursdays Middle School Orchestra, ABRSM Theory Class, Senior Orchestra (Autumn Term Only)
Fridays String Ensembles, Junior Orchestra, Middle School Choir, Chamber Choir, Musical Theatre Group
There are many other opportunities to take part in music activities at Withington, only some of which are detailed in this section.
