This is a picture of S.Peter’s Collegiate School Training Band in action at the Royal Northern College of Music on Saturday 11th April this year, where they achieved a Gold Award in the finals of the National Concert Band Festival.

This is the first time the band have been invited to participate in the finals and the award places them at the very top of music making in the country for their age group.

Comments received from the adjudicators following S. Peter’s Band performance commented of their ‘very professional approach’, ‘very controlled work’, ‘lots of punchy articulation and excitement’

Reverend Steve Walters, Acting Principal said, “This is a magnificent achievement which recognises the high standard of music at S.Peter’s Collegiate School.  The event itself was very special as it allowed our musicians to play alongside top class professional musicians.  Well done to all concerned particularly the Music Department for all their dedication, hard work and preparation for the event.”
