Music is at the heart of everyday life at Withington both in and outside of
the School. Founders’ Day, Christmas Concerts, Musical Productions, Citizenship Day, Assemblies, Curricular and Extracurricular Music. Listening, composing and performing, there is something for
everyone at every level!
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.
There are many other opportunities to take part in music activities at Withington, only some of which are detailed in this section.
