Opus 100

Opus 100 has launched!

When is it?

Every Wednesday, 3:45-5:00pm

Our Opus 100 ensemble workshops started on Wednesday 1st February. We warmly welcomed all the students coming from our local primary schools and we are sure that they and their peers at Ridgewood are already enjoying the Opus 100 scheme.

Year 7 Opus students are on brass (trumpet, trombone) and woodwind (saxophone, clarinet), and play alongside cello and double bass players.

Opus 100 participants are involved in a range of music and team building exercises and vocal skills, as well as developing their understanding of music theory in an interactive way. This is all led by our specialist Opus 100 staff. We believe that the children develop academically through this scheme as well expanding their ‘network’ and meeting new friends from other primary schools and eventually mixing with students from different year groups.

What do Opus 100 participants need to bring?

  • Their instrument!
  • Some change for the tuck shop
  • A pencil

What are the travel arrangements?

Students from Saltersgate and Rosedale are accompanied to walk to Ridgewood in time for the start of the rehearsal at 3.45pm. Students from Copley and Richmond Hill are taken by coach to Ridgewood School.

All students are greeted at the main pedestrian gate by members of Ridgewood staff and Opus 100 ambassadors, to be registered in time for the workshop to start.

If your child is a participant, please collect him/her at the end of the rehearsal from the designated area at 5.00pm

  • Saltersgate students– Front Lounge
  • Rosedale students – Main gate
  • Copley students – Main reception
  • Richmond Hill students– Student Services

If your child is arranging lifts with their friends, you need to make sure that this is signed on the consent form that is provided by your school. This is available for download at the bottom of this page.
