As many parents know, as Headmaster I have always passionately believe that music is beneficial to all our learners and that learning to play a musical instrument helps a child’s brain develop. Learning to play an instrument whilst at school has now been scientifically proven by the University of Cambridge, UK to increase cognitive performance in examinations at college. I learnt to play both the piano and clarinet as a child whilst at school and it taught me the importance of focus and resilience.
In order to increase the opportunities to learn a musical instrument in Years 2-6, we will be launching a new Primary Music Programme for all students from August 2020. I am very excited by this new programme and I truly believe it will transform our music provision in our Primary years. The financial investment into this programme is significant and I am confident it will be money well spent as our music continues to flourish.
Please look at the Programme overview for more details of this exciting programme.
