Music

The Junior School Music Department is a buzzy, exciting environment. We aim to stimulate and challenge to nurture, foster and encourage musical potential. We provide many musical opportunities that will help your daughter develop skills that enable her to enjoy music making.

We provide a comprehensive and systematic curriculum that all girls follow, which include ukulele and recorder playing. All girls in Key Stage 2 sing in the school choir and Key Stage 1 girls have the opportunity to take part in a string experience. We also provide extensive extra-curricular activities with our dedicated and specialist team of visiting Music staff. Ensembles includes brass, woodwind, strings and the challenging vocal ensemble. Almost half of all Junior School girls enjoy weekly one-to-one music tuition and celebrate success with Associated Board of the Royal School of Music.examinations. Year 6 students often secure places in the National Children’s Orchestra and at specialist Saturday morning music schools.

For further information about all music opportunities at the Junior School please read our Music Booklet.

Performance opportunities

These range from Form Assemblies, Music Assemblies, Christmas Productions, the Upper KS2 Production, Performance Platforms for girls in Years 4 to 6 and the Spring Concert.
