Music is central to the creative life of the school. Weekly music lessons with a specialist music teacher, Mr Tama Nathan BMus, start from nursery and are a key part of our curriculum. Music lessons are rooted in theory with a strong emphasis on performance. From nursery through to Year 6, music lessons are designed to nurture and challenge all our children to become accomplished young musicians, sharing their achievements through regular individual and group performances.
