At King’s Priory School we aim to put music at the centre of every aspect of school life. From whole school singing assemblies to solo performances, Open Mic nights and Musical Theatre productions; music is at the heart of our school.
We believe that pupils who have opportunities to participate in high quality musical activities experience growth in self-confidence, a sense of community spirit, pride in their own achievements and develop outstanding collaboration skills and a strong work ethic.
Music begins in Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) with weekly structured lessons taught by music department specialists. This ensures that from the very start, pupils are exposed to instruments, notation and performance opportunities that we strongly believe are unrivalled locally. As the pupils journey through the school the music curriculum grows to encompass all genres of music to capture and engage all pupils, whatever their musical preferences.
Pupils also benefit from the largest visiting music teaching team in the area which offers specialist instrumental teaching in all the orchestral, pop and rock instruments and voice.
Our extensive extra-curricular programme is open to pupils from across the First, Middle and Senior schools and we are proud of the opportunities that we provide for all pupils to access music clubs.
If you are interested in the musical life of Kings Priory School, please do not hesitate to contact the department and either Mrs Elizabeth Johnston or Mr Guy Swinton would be only too happy to talk with you.
