SMG classes are open to anyone aged 18 or over and are held over three continuous terms which align to the school year, September to June, for 12, 10 and 8 weeks.

SMG classes take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during the school year, with both daytime and evening classes.

The final week of Term 1 features end-of-term ‘stramashes’ where classes meet to share tunes and songs, on the last ‘normal’ day of term for evening classes. Daytime classes arrange a time and date which suits most classes best.

There is also a Student Concert at the end of Term 2 to which all classes from all days are invited to attend and perform. There is no event at the end of Term 3. Friends and family are welcome to attend all end-of-term performances.
