      Music

      Music is a vital part of our life in the Prep School, which permeates our entire curriculum. As well as providing lots of fun and enjoyment, our lessons help us to develop an understanding and appreciation of a wide range of different kinds of music. As a result, we are able to develop and extend our own interests and increase our ability to make judgements of musical quality. We love to share our music with parents, friends and the wider community and we do this through Informal Concerts, Staged Productions and Whole School Music Performances.
