The Academy of St Francis of Assisi, Liverpool is the newest addition in becoming a musical futures champion school in 2018. The music department is lead by Jay Bradley and he adopts and advocates a love of learning through practical music-making. Every student has the opportunity to learn a range of musical instruments, take part in whole class ensemble work and experience dynamic and inspirational teaching. Our students are at the heart of everything we do and learning music is supported and enhanced by our peripatetic staff. We are one of the few departments that provide free music tuition. This being a fantastic opportunity for any student.
We have an extensive extra-curricular programme both after school and at lunch times. Ensembles include; senior and junior contemporary choirs, a high energy drumming ensemble, a KS3 pop band, a KS4 hip-hop band, a guitar skills ensemble, a wind ensemble and a music production group.
