Girls enjoy the opportunity to participate in many musical activities and there are many opportunities throughout the year offering individual and group performances.
Our two specialist Music Teachers encourage musical creativity and enjoyment through both the curriculum and the array of extra-curricular activities. All girls from Year 2 are encouraged to learn to play a musical instrument with 'taster' lessons available in school. Over two thirds of pupils take individual music lessons with one of the team of over 25 Visiting Instrumental Musicians. Many pupils enter Associated Board music exams each term.
Girls from Reception to Year 2 have twice-weekly Music Lessons in the Mulberry House Music Suite with their own specialist Music Teacher. Lessons involve singing, understanding rhythm, playing percussion instruments and gently introducing girls to musical appreciation from a young age. All pupils in Years 3 to 6 enjoy two timetabled music lessons a week which take place in the St. John’s House Music Suite which is well equipped with percussion and musical instruments.
