Music plays an important part in the life of our school. All classes will experience music making throughout their primary school careers. Through the school’s programme of music teaching, we aim to enrich the cultural life of the school, making music a significant and memorable part of each child’s time with us.
There are opportunities to take part in class and school plays, concerts and various music activities and we encourage children to share their pleasure with others in assemblies.
We have an active school choir, with over 30 members! Both boys and girls from across the school love attending choir and sing with lots of enthusiasm! During the year, the choir participates in numerous events, including Christmas concerts, and the Young Voices concert (Birmingham LG Arena).
VIOLIN LESSONS: During the Spring term Class 4 had ten lessons to learn all these tunes on the violin. They used plucking and bowing techniques and enjoyed every lesson.

Choir also love singing at the Christmas market at Taurus Crafts:
It was wonderful to see so many choir members at Taurus Crafts! They looked very festive dressed in their Christmas jumpers. Many parents and families came to support us!
On Tuesday 24th January 21 pupils of the school choir joined over 6600 other children to form the Young Voices Choir at the NEC Birmingham. After months of practice, the children sang and danced through a two hour performance, watched by a huge audience of parents.
Even though we didn’t arrive back at school until nearly midnight, their behaviour and enthusiasm was excellent. We are now looking forward to next year already!
