The school maintains a strong musical tradition where talent is nurtured and stimulated.
Pupils learn to play the ocarina in Year Two and Three, progressing to recorder from Year Four. Tuned and untuned percussion instruments are also used by pupils in performing and composing acitivities.
Singing is a central aspect of music-making at the school. In addition to class-singing, the school has a Choir which pupils are selected to join, representing the school at competition level.
Each year the School enters pupils in the local arts competition Kettering Eisteddfod. Success has been celebrated in the following categories: solo recorder, solo ocarina, group ocarina, choir, group speaking, individual verse speaking and solo singing.
Extra-curricular lessons are available in piano, violin, drums, trumpet, flute, ballet and speech and drama.
Theatre visits are arranged from time to time. Recent productions pupils have enjoyed include Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz. Pupils in Key stage Two also experience a Shakespeare play annually, enjoying the age-appropriate productions performed by the company ‘Shakespeare for Kids’.
