Music and Drama 

The creative arts play an integral role in the life of King’s Juniors, reflected in the investment we’ve made in a new multi-purpose music and drama studio, which includes state-of-the-art sound proof music pods. This investment in the creative arts has been inspired by the wealth of talent amongst our pupils and our commitment to achieving Artsmark accreditation as a school. Within music, pupils can choose from an array of different opportunities including choirs and orchestra. Drama productions at King’s Juniors are renowned for their professionalism. Often performing in The Vanbrugh Theatre, all pupils take part in at least two productions in J2 and J4. Pupils are able to take part in the Chester Speech and Drama Festival, numerous theatre visits and can also take Trinity Guildhall Examinations. 


We believe passionately in the value of games and sports in building a sense of teamwork, character and resilience. Pupils throw themselves energetically into a huge range of sports and take part in regular competitive fixtures. There is a full inter-house programme with competitive and recreational opportunities in swimming, tennis, football, cricket, netball, athletics, rounders, cross country basketball, rugby, dance and hockey. Our playing fields, swimming pool, and new £4.5 million Sports Centre enable us to offer an unrivalled range of inter-school fixtures, with teams playing regular matches against schools across the North West and beyond. Opportunities for competitive sport increases as students’ progress through the school. 


There are a number of trips to choose from, including:

  • Optional overseas trips
  • Residential Adventure course
  • Educational visits around the region
  • Visiting workshops e.g. Shakespeare and History workshops, poets, authors
  • Cathedral services at the end of every term
