Music is an integral part of school life at Christ The King, with lessons at Key Stage 3, GCSE and is accessible at A-Level. Instrumental lessons are offered to all students who then go on to join CTK Band, Glee Club, Senior Choir, Faith Choir and Rock School.
At KS3, music forms an important, enjoyable and fulfilling part of the curriculum for all students, where the active involvement in playing instruments, singing and using music technology is a key to success. At GCSE, Music is an option course (now Edexcel 9-1) that enjoys success and achieves good results. CTK Band and Faith Choir also play a central part in the School’s Acts of Worship and at a wide variety of school and community functions.
In addition, we also provide a range of opportunities for students to perform in extra-curricular ensembles, both vocally and using their instrumental talents. Students who are members of other choirs, orchestras or bands out of school are encouraged to bring their experience and expertise into school where our aim is to encourage students to enjoy music and achieve the highest possible standard. Glee Club and Senior Choir singing ensembles enjoy enormous success and they foster a real love of music and singing for all. CTK Band provides an inclusive avenue for all standards of instrumentalist, creating vibrant and passionate performances. Successful performances include the Catenian Concert, Christmas Concert, Year 5 Showcase and the annual School Show – such as Little Shop of Horrors, High School Musical, Hairspray and Oliver.
The programme for this academic year continues to build on this success and looks to be as exciting as ever. As students also provide the musical accompaniment to our annual school show which will be Sister Act in 2018….we hope to see you there!
