Pupils also have the opportunity to play a variety of musical instruments through private tuition including:

  • Violin
  • Cello
  • Guitar
  • Piano
  • Flute
  • Oboe
  • Clarinet
  • Saxophone
  • Drums
  • Singing

St John’s Priory has a thriving school choir, the ‘SJP Singers’, who regularly attend local music competitions. Concerts feature highly on the school calendar, with all children participating in the Christmas performance, held at the local church.

At St John’s Priory School we value creativity very highly alongside academic achievement. To reflect this, we have established a new award for musically talented pupils who are currently in Year 3 (aged 7-8) at primary school and who would like to join our school in from Year 4 upwards.
