Music Tuition

Each academic year, there is an opportunity for children to be considered for music tuition in school.

Lessons are provided by the Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust. Teachers will make 33 visits to the school each year.

Learning an instrument is an exciting and valuable experience that can lead to an enjoyable life-long activity as well as provide wider health and educational benefits. 

Instruments can usually be provided to beginners free of charge (except for guitar and keyboards). Advice on instrument purchase schemes is readily available for more experienced pupils.  

The charge for tuition in 2023-24 academic year is £ 84.00 per 11 week term. £30 for recorder lessons. 

(Families in financial need are advised to contact the school to see if any support is available towards tuition costs). 

Parents should understand that students may be involved in a simple selection process to assess suitability. This will include an opportunity for some limited “hands on experience” as well as discussions with your child’s teachers. 

Tuition is normally offered initially on a trial period - usually one year.  Towards the end of the year a report will be provided which may help you to decide whether your child would benefit from continued tuition. Please note, if your child is absent, this will not entitle you to a rebate.
