Creative arts are an important feature of our school and the high quality of the various elements has been noted in all of our Ofsted inspections. We hold the Arts Mark Award. We have a choir who meet regularly and perform throughout the year both at school and at venues around Barrow in concerts and musical plays. Specialist music tuition is available which includes flute, clarinet, oboe, saxophone, cornet, trumpet, baritone, recorder, guitar and drums. Instruments to hire are available from the Cumbria Music Service who also provide some of the tuition. Our school also has “Big Band” which includes our budding musicians and some members of staff. We hold an annual Poetry competition which has formed part of Book Week. We also present two school shows each year in which all pupils play a part.
We now hold the music mark for our outstanding music provision.
