Music at Walton Hall Academy
We are very passionate about performance at Walton Hall Academy! We have a large music room in the Old Hall which is well equipped with a range of instruments. We also have our own music recording studio where the students can make their own CDs for Christmas and other occasions.
In Key Stage 3 and in our KS4/5 sensory seekers pathway, our students have weekly music lessons following a programme to develop their skills and communication.
We also have a very large school choir called “Shine On” who perform in the local community and at venues such as the Gatehouse Theatre in Stafford.
At lunchtimes we have “School of Rock” – several student bands who enjoy rehearsing and performing together.
In Key Stages 4 and 5 we run (subject to student interest/ choice) BTEC accreditation in Music Technology, Performing Arts and Radio. This allows the students to develop their performance confidence in a vocational context.
