Music is important in the life of the school. All children are offered music making opportunities, as well as opportunities to listen. The school uses music scheme materials to provide a common, developmental, progressive and structured core. All pupils in year 4 are given a musical instrument (clarinet, cornet or trombone) for home loan and taught 1 hour per week through class music activities.
The County Music Service through its peripatetic teachers currently offer in-school tuition on the following instruments: violin, viola, cello, guitar, trumpet/cornet, trombone, clarinet, and flute. Parents who wish for their children to learn an instrument through the County’s Music Service must apply by completing and submitting the appropriate request form which is available from the school office. It is important to note that parents are expected to make a financial contribution towards tuition fees, however, the school owns a number flutes and clarinets which children are very welcome to borrow and take home to practise with.
