Music is prioritised at Barnby Road Academy. Every child accesses a weekly singing session run by our pianist Peter Higgins. Year 3 and 4 children learn the recorder (Covid restrictions forbid this last year) and Years 5 and 6 have weekly ukulele sessions.
We are very proud of our school orchestra of 30+ children that plays for a number of performances throughout the year. Barnby Road Academy has a range of ensembles and choirs:
Monday: Guitar club 12:15pm (Mr Webster)
Tuesday: Junior choir for Year 2&3 12:30pm (Mr Higgins)
Wednesday: Orchestra 8:15am, Recorder Club 12:30pm (Mrs Wyatt)
Thursday: Chamber choir 8:15am
Boys’ choir 12:30pm (Mr Higgins)
Friday: Senior choir 2:30pm (Mrs Wyatt & Mr Higgins)
Instrumental lessons are offered to Key Stage 2 children, dependent on the availability of instruments. We currently have children learning the cello, violin, trumpet, cornet, trombone, French horn, flute, saxophone, clarinet, percussion and piano.
