Welcome to the music page

Hello and welcome back for a new school year.  I hope you all had a great summer holiday and are looking forward to the new term in school.  As always, we are extremely busy preparing for events already, and have many opportunities planned throughout the year for your children to perform both in and out of school over the 2019 and 2020 season.  We have built up a brilliant reputation over the past few years for music and this has recently culminated in forming our ‘Rock School’ who have performed all over the country.  There are very few schools in the whole country with the resources and skills to provide such an opportunity and we are very proud that we have been able to offer this amazing opportunity to your children.  Also we have managed to gain the Sing Up Platinum Award, which is a massive achievement for the school.  It has been a long journey over the past few years but, working together, we have achieved our goal.  It is important that we now keep up this high standard so we can show other schools how singing can be fun and accessible to all.

Thank you all for your continuing support and please don’t hesitate to get in contact if there is anything I can help you with this year.
