There are musical opportunities for everyone at The Elms. Pupils can discover new instruments, find their voices in the school choir or simply enjoy exploring music with their classmates in lessons.

better together

The 29 school ensembles that rehearse each week are a testament to our belief that music is an experience best shared. When pupils create music together, they develop new and existing skills in a fun, social environment. Our spacious Music School studios allow large ensembles to practise comfortably.


All pupils enjoy weekly lessons with a specialist music teacher. We introduce pupils to the recorder in Year 2 and begin reading notation. In Juniors, pupils enhance rhythmic and pitch awareness and learn music theory. Visiting instrumental teachers support our classroom staff and offer pupils additional guidance as required.

time to shine

There are a variety of performance opportunities for pupils to share their skills with the school community. These performances are essential for encouraging and celebrating pupil development. Parents are invited to see their child’s progress first-hand in school showcases and during open weeks.
