  • Music and Art



The music department plays a key role in the development of the creative skills of our pupils. We have an orchestra, ensembles, brass groups, a wind band and a number of choirs.

Throughout the year many concerts and music workshops are held. Peripatetic instrumental teachers visit the school on a regular basis and offer pupils private lessons in a wide range of instruments. Many of these pupils have successfully taken either Associated Board or Guildhall grade exams, with a high percentage gaining merit, distinction or honours.

Performing Arts

Drama continues to be one of the most popular curriculum lessons at Prince’s Mead. Children love performing and from an early age, they are given all the stagecraft tools necessary for putting on a variety of productions during their time at the school including Nativity Plays, class assemblies and musical theatre presentations, all culminating in the Year 6 production at the end of their school journey..

Music at Prince’s Mead is taught in a very practical way with emphasis on learning through fun. We are lucky to have the beautiful Mirror Room where class music lessons take place, which also gives us the space to use movement games as a tool for understanding music. Every class in the school, from Reception to Year 6, has a lesson every week with a Music Specialist. Activities are varied and include singing games as well as movement. The children in Reception also meet for a weekly choir lesson and learn much of their curriculum through song within their classroom.

String Group RehearsalEach summer Years 5 and 6 perform a major musical drama production. Recent productions have included The Mikado, Bugsy Malone, Oliver, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, Annie, Oklahoma!, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and most recently Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Our annual Music Festival includes a large number of solo performances as well as a concert featuring the main choir and several musical groups. Other concerts and informal performances are held during the course of the academic year.

We are very proud of past pupils and those who have achieved success in the performing arts are invited to return and perform in Friday Prayers to act as outstanding role models for our pupils. We operate a 'Musical Award Scheme' and a number of pupils have been nominated to become our inspirational 'Performing Arts Heroes'.
