Students at St Joseph’s Tranmere are encouraged to take part in a wide range of extended learning opportunities. We offer a variety of programs suitable for Reception to Year 6's, that enable our students to explore their passion and interests.
Each year our students in Years 5 and 6 have the opportunity to join the choir and perform at the Catholic Schools Music Festival at the Festival Theatre. This event is always a great night out that showcases the rich musical talent of students in Catholic schools. We are proud of our long association with the Music Festival and love offering this opportunity for our students.
