Open Day

2.30pm to 5pm, Saturday, March 7th, 2020,

The Open Day is a great way to find out more about becoming a pupil at St Mary's Music School and allows you to see, and hear, first hand, what we have to offer those with an outstanding musical talent.

Visiting at Open Day will give you the best opportunity to see the school in action and meet and talk with our current parents, pupils and staff. There will be guided tours of the school, including boarding facilities, a presentation from the Headteacher and music from pupils.

Whether you compose or sing, play bagpipes, saxophone, flute, bassoon, percussion or violin or more, join us to discover the benefits of being surrounded by other children who love music as much as you do.  

The afternoon runs to a fixed schedule. Places are limited and booking is essential. 

Please note this event is suitable for children age 7 and above who are interested in full time education at St Mary's Music School. 

If you are interested in your child joining our Friday and Saturday Music Classes which are open to children age 4 to 12, please contact Kerry Turnock, kturnock@st-marys-music-school.co.uk for further information and availability. 

If you are interested in your child becoming a Chorister, please contact Mary Walls, mwalls@st-marys-music-school.co.uk to find out about Tuesday Singing Club and our next Be a Chorister Afternoon. 

Find out more, see the detailed programme and book your place here.
