SJR’s music department have been working with many partner high schools on a series of specialist workshops which have proved to be extremely popular.
David Wall and James Ellwood represented the department and would like to thank Burscough Priory, St Edmund Arrowsmith, St John Fisher and Up Holland high schools for the warm welcome they received and the focus and enthusiasm shown by the students with whom they worked.
The high school groups enjoyed masterclasses on composition with links to topics such as world music, dance music and the blues.
Our teaching staff gave students a flavour of the options available to them at SJR, including the new Elective Programme, and encouraged students from Year 9 through to Year 11 to begin to think about their future career paths.
The sessions were enjoyed thoroughly by all who participated and we hope to continue to develop the strong links we have with our partner high schools by providing more of these opportunities in the near future.
