The school has a strong musical tradition with its own school choir. At present all children benefit from class lessons that include an appreciation of all kinds of music, singing, learning to play instruments, composing and performing. All Year 3 children have regular opportunities to learn the recorder with a specialist teacher and a chance to develop this in Years 4 – 6. Children from Year 3 have the opportunity to begin tuition in keyboards, brass, or woodwind. Small ensembles are developing from these groups and perform regularly in school.

Music Tuition

Charges for Instrumental Tuition from peripatetic music staff are subsidised from the school budget. However, parents who accept music lessons for their child are expected to make a financial contribution. This is currently £50.00 per term payable in advance. Even at this level the fees represent exceptional value for money and are well below the actual cost of the lessons. Parents in receipt of Income Support, Working Families Tax Credit or Income Based Job Seekers Allowance may be entitled to a remission of fees. This is to ensure equal access to all children.

Music Leader
