Creative and performing arts
Junior School children experience a mind-expanding range of arts activities.
Music is taught to all age groups and, in addition, in Year 3 all children learn either the violin or cello as part of our Strings Programme. We are proud that many choose to continue with an instrument after Year 3 and we have a large number of specialist visiting instrumental teachers.
Let the music play
St Chris has a thriving Junior School orchestra and jazz band, as well as a number of singing groups.
Morning Talks provide an excellent opportunity for individuals and groups to perform, and all classes give a termly presentation of their topic for the rest of the Junior School pupils and parents.
Progress to the next level
In Year 6, the children spend one afternoon a week in the Senior School being taught Art (as well Cookery and Science) in specialist facilities by Senior School teachers.
