Music has a power of forming the character and should therefore be introduced into the education of the young. (Aristotle)


Music is an integral part of school life at Highburton CE (VC) First School.  Every class receives one music lesson a week as well as Whole School Singing.

Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity and is fully embedded into our school curriculum and our aspiration is that every child adopts a lifelong love of music.


To build on the musical horizons of each child, we strongly believe that children should be given the opportunity to share their musical skills at different events both in and outside of school. We want all our children to have the opportunity to learn an instrument in every year group thorough school therefore we have planned this within our curriculum. In Key Stage 1: Year 1 – Ocarina, Year 2 – Recorder (woodwind), and in Key Stage 2: Year 3 – Clarinet (woodwind), Year 4 – Ukulele (strings), Year 5 – Cornet or trombone (Brass). 

There are many opportunities for our children to perform to an audience as they progress through school.  Please enjoy some of the talented performances seen every week in the classroom by clicking on the links below.
