Stamford Park Junior School has an outstanding and well-established Music Department.
All classes have a weekly music lesson, with a music specialist who is a member of the school staff, where they learn the disciplines of performance, listening and composition using a wide range of instruments. Singing plays a particularly important part in the curriculum and in school life generally.
A large number of pupils learn an instrument in school and there is a wide range of visiting instrumental teachers teaching strings, woodwind, brass, percussion, guitar, piano and voice. Please contact the School Office if you would like further information on this. The department is well resourced, with many instruments, some of which are available for children to borrow.
The school is extremely proud of its large orchestra and the two choirs, who cater for the lower and upper juniors and for special events and performances, a Year Six Chamber Choir. All these ensembles perform both in and out of school throughout the year.

Today, as you can see from our News Page, both the junior and senior choirs took part in the Altrincham Festival. The two choirs both sang two songs, one of which was set by the organisers. It was a pleasure to watch the children and, as always, they did the school proud. Many thanks to them, the parents who supported us today and the ever enthusiastic Mrs Rowley too.

Our weekly Special Mentions assembly today was another chance for some of our musicians to share their talents with the rest of the school. Today it was the clarinets that played us both into and out of assembly. Well done to all the children who took part.

We have so many talented musicians in the school and it's always a real treat to hear them. Very often, they play the rest of the school both into and out of assembly. Today, we had the pleasure of listening to some Year 5 children playing the piano.

One of our extremely talented Year 5 pupils came 1st in the Piano Grade 4 presentation and 2nd in the Woodwind Grade 2 presentation. Many congratulations to her this year.

Our talented school orchestra, managed by Mrs Lewis, is busy rehearsing for our upcoming Christmas concert. We have a talented range of musicians in our school orchestra and even have former pupils that return to play in and support it too.
