We feel it is important for children to develop their interests and talents outside the classroom, in order to become a more ‘rounded’ individual. A wide variety of extra-curricular activities is provided in the form of clubs, musical groups and sporting pursuits applicable to varying ages. Most of our children attend at least one activity per week whilst many have so many interests that they may have to choose when clashes occur.

Music and Drama play a vital role in the life of King’s Juniors. Large numbers of pupils take
advantage of private musical tuition at school and the choir and orchestral ensembles perform regularly in church services and in public. Children are also encouraged to perform during morning assemblies. As well as our Woodwind Wonders, Team Brass, Guitar Ensemble, Super Samba and String Stars, there are productions throughout the year and our children participate fully in local music festivals.
The Year 6 Musical is a highlight of the school year when all of Year 6 are involved in putting on a full musical performed in front of full houses.
Year 4 children take part in their own pantomime allowing children to display their musical and dramatic talents to the full. Year 5 children also represent the school at the annual Macclesfield Primary Schools Music Festival.
Large numbers of pupils take advantage of private musical tuition whilst at school. Years 3 & 4 children are encouraged to arrange tuition outside lesson times so as not to upset their academic progress, but Years 5 & 6 pupils can take music lessons during academic periods on a rota basis.
