Music Tuition

We have an experienced group of peripatetic teachers visit our school weekly to teach a broad range of musical instruments including strings, brass and woodwind. All our teachers are professional musicians and are fully vetted with all appropriate DBS checks and provide high quality music lessons and music opportunities to our children. 

Lessons are taught in small groups of approximately four children.  It is expected that a charge of £40 per term (6 terms per year) will be made for these lessons, this amount may increase slightly each academic year depending on the number of children having lessons. Parents who have been in receipt of Free School Meals at any time since September 2017 can have their children’s instrumental lessons subsidised by the Pupil Premium fund, which is part of the government allocation to each school’s budget. 

If you wish your child to be considered for instrumental tuition in school please contact us to request a music tuition form at
