YOUNG VOICES 2024

On Monday 5th February, our choir sang at the AO Arena, Manchester alongside 8000 other children in the Young Voices Concert.

All the children in our choir have worked very hard to learn all the songs and their efforts were rewarded on Monday evening. We are all extremely proud of them – they sang so well and a fantastic time was had by all at this very special event.

Thank you to all our parents and families who supported us and all those who helped the choir along the way.

Here are photographs and videos of our afternoon and evening at the Arena:

YOUNG VOICES 2020

All our choir’s hard work in rehearsals over the past few months paid off at our spectacular Young Voices Concert on Friday. We were amongst 8351 children who performed at Manchester Arena as part of ‘The Largest School Choir Concerts in the World’.

We are extremely proud of our children’s fantastic singing, their super dance moves and their impeccable behaviour during the rehearsal and concert at the Arena. Here are some photographs and video from our amazing day – a truly memorable experience for all of us!

Artsmark Award For Grosvenor Road

We are very pleased to announce that we have been awarded the prestigious Artsmark Silver Award.

Artsmark is Arts Council England’s award for schools and education settings who champion cultural education, celebrating settings that embrace the arts across the curriculum.

Our Silver Award shows how the school is skilled in unlocking the potential of our children, developing their character and talent, and increasing their knowledge and understanding across the wider curriculum.

The award has been achieved over a three year period, led by Mrs Heys and Mrs Peacock, together with our Art Subject Leader Mrs Moran and our Music Subject Leader Mrs Newall. We look forward to continuing to promote the arts and a wider curriculum at Grosvenor Road, giving our children a range of opportunities and experiences in school and out in the wider community.

On Thursday we welcomed Chris and Stewart from Travelling By Tuba into school with their wide array of instruments. All our children were given the opportunity to experience an assembly or a workshop by the talented duo who entertain us, whilst teaching key musical knowledge.
