At Sancta Maria College, we believe strongly in a broad and balanced curriculum. The Arts play an important role in fostering an appreciation of a wide range of perspectives and in actively promoting both
curiosity and creativity.
We also offer a wide range of cultural co-curricular activities. These allow students to develop their talents and interests, to celebrate their culture and to give service to both the College and the wider community.
Music is a vital and lively part of the curriculum at Sancta Maria College. As well as an exciting classroom programme, a large number of itinerant teachers come into school each week to offer specialist instrumental tuition in many disciplines including Guitar, Piano, Percussion, Voice, Strings, Brass and Woodwind.
Co-curricular groups offered include: Jazz Bands, Choirs, Orchestras, Classical Ensembles, Pop Groups and Concert Band. These award-winning performance groups are a huge credit to the school as they continue to build a reputation for excellence amongst the music community.
Our music groups also perform at assemblies, prize giving, community concerts, regional competitions and festivals with a wide range of music from rock and jazz to classical and vocal.
