The importance of music for a growing child cannot be underestimated. Music fosters self-esteem and the ability to work cooperatively in teams, as well as enhancing learning in other core subjects. Music is a huge part of Westbourne Junior School. All students learn the music curriculum through a creative approach to composition, performance and listening. There are many exciting opportunities to perform in and out of school. Recent events have included shows at the Montgomery Theatre, a gig night at The Leadmill, a Samba Carnival Day including 150 children from around Sheffield and a performance of spooky Halloween songs at the Winter Gardens.
