Music

Children are given many opportunities to take part in musical activities and performances.  All children learn to play the recorder, ukulele and steel pans.  Whenever possible, we also offer additional whole class and small group instrumental lessons.  In key-stage 2 children can join our popular school choir which practises every week.  Our steel band, choir and dance club regularly perform in assemblies, festivals and special events in the community.

If your child is in Years 2 – 6 and you are interested in them learning to play the guitar or keyboard then please see a member of the office team for more information.
