We have over one hundred children learning instruments in school including flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, baritone cello, violin and guitar and more. These lessons are provided (fees apply) during the school day by specialist teachers from the Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust (see more information below). There are some subsidies available and we also offer every child the opportunity to learn an instrument for at least a term during key stage two through First Access projects such as whole class Samba, Ukulele, Recorder and African drumming.

With so many pupils involved with playing instruments we are lucky enough to be able have our own Wind Band. The band rehearses weekly and has regular performances throughout the year. This ensemble playing is extremely important at developing skills, but is also great fun!

We sometimes run other ensembles and have a large non -selective choir.  All of our groups have performance opportunities through the year and we have been regular participants in the Northamptonshire Festival of Music and Performing Arts

We enhance our music curriculum with workshops and recitals from visiting musicians and by taking part in larger projects with other schools.

We are lucky to have such excellent support from our local Music Hub, "The Northamptonshire Music and performing Arts Trust", which not only supplies the teachers for our instrumental lessons in school, but also provides many other musical services including Saturday Morning Music Schools (open to all ages) and a multitude of county ensembles through which children gain valuable playing experience.
