Music and Drama

The vibrant Music department in the Prep school allows all students to experience a variety of music from different countries, genres, and periods in history. Their experience in the classroom enables them to play a range of instruments, improvise, compose, sing, and explore music technology using software such as Mixcraft and Cubase. All Prep students are involved in a Choir, including our Key Stage 1 Choir and Key Stage 2 Choir.

All students who play an instrument are strongly encouraged to join our extra-curricular programme. We have a Prep Rock Band, a combined Prep and Senior School Orchestra and Jazz band. The instrumentalists also get opportunities to perform in assemblies, informal tea concerts and more formal evening concerts including the Prep Soiree.

Music and Drama work closely together to produce Christmas Nativities and the annual Summer show, with recent acclaimed performances such as Jungle Book, Rock Bottom and The Lion King.

Prep students can take private music lessons in a wide range of instruments with one of our visiting music teachers. Students in Year 3 and above can take Speech and Drama lessons through LAMDA and have achieved Distinctions across the board over the past few years.
