A key part of these specialisms is the access to specialist teaching and equipment. Music, PE and French lessons are taught by highly accomplished musicians, PE specialists and French speakers.
Children and parents are expected to take an active part in music learning, including practising their skills regularly at home. We are also at the forefront of educational thinking in these subjects and create and lead many exciting projects to further develop the children’s knowledge and skills.
The Music department has a team of experienced instrumental teachers who visit the school on a weekly basis to give individual lessons. We currently offer Piano, Violin, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Guitar and Drums. It is hoped that we will soon be in a position to offer Cello and Brass lessons as well. In addition, the Junior School now has a small but thriving orchestra, a choir of over fifty children and a Recorder ensemble.
