St. Peter’s School maintains a strong musical tradition where talent is nurtured and stimulated.
Pupils learn to play the ocarina in Years Two and Three, progressing to the recorder from Year Four. After one year of recorder tuition, the Year Five children work towards an externally assessed ABRSM Music Medal. This award has three components in each assessment, with candidates playing one ensemble piece, one solo piece and an option test which tests musicianship skills. The children develop these skills during their class music lessons.
We have a wide range of tuned and untuned percussion instruments which are used by pupils in class music making and composing activities.
Singing is a central aspect of music making at the School. In addition to class singing, the school choir has been successful at representing the School at competition level. Our school orchestra called 'Music Explorers' meet weekly to make music together.
Extra-curricular lessons are available in school in instruments such as violin, piano, flute, clarinet, saxophone, vocal, ballet and speech and drama.
Pupils in Sunnylands Nursery, Reception Class and Key Stage One look forward to performing their annual Christmas production. Pupils in Key Stage Two have a wide range of performance opportunities including musical soirees, the Chistmas Carol Service performed in our local church and also in school productions. The children also enjoy visits to local theatres for both musical and non musical productions.
