The opportunity to learn a number of musical instruments is available at our school, generally in KS2. We have visiting teachers of strings, brass, woodwind, guitar and piano who hold weekly lessons during the school day. Our peripatetic music teachers are trained teachers who are self employed and set their own charges and undertake their own administration. Occasionally our music pupils showcase their learning in assemblies for the whole school.
As of September 2017, our teachers are:
Mr Meade: Guitar
Mrs Broekman: Strings
Mr Morris: Woodwind and Piano
Mr Farrington: Brass
Mr Lafferty: Ukelele
Miss Stone: Vocals
Mr Bates: Drums

Gloucestershire Music runs an instrument hire service, which is free (for the first instrument) for those entitled to free school meals. Click the logo to access their website from where parents may view hire charges and download instrument hire forms. The site also contains lots of information about music making in the County and music groups which young musicians may join.
