Please note: We have postponed the Sports Day and Summer Fayre to Friday 14th July. Hopefully this will give everyone the chance to rearrange so they can join us at these events.
These are taught during the normal school day (8:55 a.m. – 3:15 p.m.) by peripatetic music teachers. Children will receive music lessons as part of the standard curriculum led by Mr Nichol. However, if you would like your child to receive enhanced music tuition during school hours we currently have on offer:
Monday: Drums with Mr Bovill
Wednesday: Guitar with Mr Clappison or Cornet with Mr Grant
Friday: Violin with Mr Little
We also have a ‘School of Rock’ (club) led by Mr Nichol every Friday after school.
Peripatetic music teachers are specialist in their area and deliver high quality tuition to every child. In order to do this, they need to have commitment from yourself and your child to attend for the full term so that your child can progress with their learning.
