Music and Drama are taught at every stage of the Pre-Prep curriculum.
Everyone has a unique relationship with music and we provide a large array of opportunities for developing individual interests. We believe all children can enjoy singing, listening, composing and playing instruments and we encourage all our pupils to develop a love for music and confidence both in creating and performing it.
Drama plays an important part in self-expression and is incorporated into music lessons, with a particular focus on acting out lyrics. As well as twice-weekly class Music lessons throughout the Pre-Prep, there is a large and popular choir, and weekly assembly singing. Pupils in PP3 (Year 3) have whole class recorder lessons too.
One-on-one instrumental or voice tuition with a peripatetic teacher is available from PP2 (Year 2) onwards. Our Pre-Prep children have the opportunity to perform in a recital and concert every term and are also able to take part in a special choir festival with the Merlin School making music with other children for different audiences.

Children get the chance to perform both theatrically and musically in termly assemblies and Christmas dance shows. PP3 pupils (Year 3) also take part in a special end of year summer show before they move into the Prep School.
