From the beginning great emphasis is placed on Music and it is intended to offer bursaries for talented individuals. Children are taught rhythm, pitch, timbre, tempo and volume and are encouraged to perform.
Infants Summer Concert
Instrumental concerts are held three times a year and allow children to perform publicly, both individually and as members of a group. From Nursery, children are encouraged to sing and make music. Recorder is taught progressively from Year 1 to Year 6. The Music Department is well equipped with keyboards, pianos and various percussion instruments.
Peripatetic staff give individual tuition in a variety of instruments such as clarinet, violin, organ, cello, flute, oboe, brass instruments, percussion and guitar. Children who learn an instrument take part in school musical activities such as the orchestra, string and wind ensembles, church services and school concerts and are entered for public examinations when they have reached the required standard.
Musicians at school
The Nursery and Infant classes perform annual Nativity and summer musicals. The Year 6 class stages an end of year summer production. The school choir also performs successfully at local festivals.
