Music

 

Music thrives in the Junior School. Children can learn a wide range of instruments with specialist peripatetic staff and have the opportunity to perform to pupils and staff at daily assemblies.

An annual instrumental and choral concert takes place at Easter and there are also opportunities to perform in Senior School based concerts: providing good transitional links. Each year group also produces at least one lavish and costumed performance each academic session. We have two highly popular choirs who are often invited to sing at various events and provide great links to the local community as well as being very successful competitively. The Junior School also currently has its own Strings Group, Folk Club, Wind Band, Guitar Group  and Recorder Ensemble.

All children receive two class music lessons a week.  In P3 they learn to play the Recorder, basic Keyboard technique in P4 and the Ukulele in P5. P6 children concentrate particularly on composing and creative projects.
