Children love to perform!
Music and Drama are a vital part of what we provide. Our school stage allows children of all ages to perform regularly and there are a number of productions throughout the year. We ensure that all our children perform on our stage at least once every year. Teamwork and confidence exude from our productions.
Our school choir is renowned locally and has been successful in a number of competitions including the Buxton Music Festival recently where they were proclaimed to be the best under eleven school choir performing.
All our children are given the opportunity and are encouraged to have individual music lessons on a variety of instruments. We believe that these lessons benefit the children in a number of ways and the lessons take place during the normal school day. In class music lessons, enjoyment of music is encouraged, whilst not losing sight of the importance of teaching the rudiments.
Music Scholarships to Independent Schools have been won in the past couple of years and one pupil recently performed a concerto for two pianos at a recent concert.
