Music

The Early Years Foundation Stage and National Curriculum form the basis of our music curriculum and we widely enhance it to enable our girls to experience a broad range of music. All music lessons take place in our dedicated music room and are taught by the Head of Music.

From the age of six, girls are able to opt for instrumental lessons; currently on offer are piano, violin, cello, saxophone woodwind and singing. Peripatetic music teachers teach individual lessons, music ensembles and assist the orchestra.

We have two music assemblies each week, one for music appreciation and one for performance. Girls of any standard perform.

Associated Board exams are taken each term, and the consistently high standards achieved by the girls reflect the high quality of teaching. Our girls consistently gain music scholarships for their chosen senior schools.

Music groups

The Junior and Senior choir meet as an after school club. There are ensembles according to the instruments being learned, including string, cello and wind groups, as well as a chamber ensemble. There is also a Junior string group, for violin and cello beginners, a recorder group and a flute group. Musical theory classes occur during lunch breaks and before school for girls working towards Grades 1 to 5.
