There is a strong tradition of music in the school. Music is taught in every class. Children in KS2 have access to a wider opportunities programme of specialist music provision, djembe drums, brass and ukulele, delivered by Hertfordshire Music Service. In addition, our Year 6 children all learn the cornet with Paul Fisher. All children also have the opportunity to join the school choir. We put on musical plays at Christmas, and organise a ‘Musical Arts Afternoon’ in the Summer Term. We work closely with local schools and have performed at The Royal Albert Hall and The Rickmansworth Music Festival.
In addition to the music curriculum children at Chorleywood Primary School have the opportunity to learn to play a specific instrument. The instruments currently offered by Herts Music Service are the violin and the piano. A charge is made for these lessons, depending on the length of lesson and number of children in the group.
Children can also learn guitar at school with a company called The Rock and Pop Foundation. Drumming, vocal coaching, flute and clarinet are also taught at the school through Soundbox Academy. A private arrangement is made with the teacher for these lessons.
Please refer to the parent information documents on this page which contain all information regarding these lessons, and should be able to answer any questions or queries you may have.
We are delighted that Chorleywood Primary School's entry for the Royal Philharmonic Society's Inspiration Award received a Special Commendation.
