Investing in the arts

Any Year 3 pupil who joins us from September 2021, will benefit from free one to one music, singing or drama lessons with a specialist teacher, for a whole year.

As we put 2020 behind us and look towards the future, we are placing a renewed emphasis on the arts – an area that has been a true casualty of the pandemic. 

Headteacher Mrs Brown explains, “Careers in the arts are essential to our country's economy, not to mention our collective well-being, sense of community and general enjoyment of life. At this school, we feel passionately that the future of music and theatre needs to be preserved and invested in, rather than side-lined and ignored. 

“Our feeling is so strong that we are making a significant financial investment. Any Year 3 pupil joining the school from September 2021 will have one-to-one music or drama lessons with a specialist teacher, completely free of charge for a year.”

With this amazing offer, girls can choose between singing lessons or an instrument of their choice. Alternatively, they can opt for weekly speech and drama lessons, building confidence and vocabulary, that could lead to them take LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) qualifications.

The investment amounts to approximately £600 per pupil and is in addition to the timetabled music and drama lessons for the whole class.

This offer will run until the end of the 2021-22 academic year, but the school guarantees that anyone who joins their Year 3 waiting list by 31 August 2021 – even if their daughter is currently in infant or nursery school – will qualify for these lessons when their daughter starts at the school.  

As well as encouraging a love of performing arts, there is also an academic benefit. Studies have found that music students often outperform their peers in English, Maths and science, and engagement with theatre can boost academic performance, social bonding, emotional and cognitive skills in children. * 

“Our aim is to inspire a generation of children who have a discerning appreciation of music and performance, as well as enhancing their general development” says Mrs Brown. “Long gone are the days when children should be seen and not heard. We want our pupils to act out, play up and make some noise!”
