Performing Arts

Seeing my child have the confidence to stand-up and perform in front of others was the highlight of our year.


The school undertakes a full music curriculum, using the 'Charanga' scheme of learning, which provided a balanced programme with clear progression of knowledge and skills. The school offers additional clubs in a variety of music and drama, and the children love to perform. Through our partnership with St Albans School we have also been able to offer additional performing arts opportunities such as the Year 4 performance of 'Joseph'.

Opportunities to perform have come in musical sharing assemblies, Spring Festival, Summer Festival and the James Marshall Foundation 300th Anniversary concert. At the end of every year, Year 6 put on a play and at Christmas there are Early Years and KS1 nativity and Christmas plays.

The school takes part in external events in the local area, for example at the Wheathampstead Community Group Thursday lunchtime club, and the annual Rotary Carol Concert. This year we travelled to the Royal Albert Hall to take part in the Hertfordshire Schools Music Gala.

In addition, your child can have instrumental lessons from visiting peripatetic teachers.  If you would like your child to have lessons, please contact Mrs H Pleasants in the main office.
