Rocksteady

During School lessons:  Mon/Fri afternoons

Rocksteady gives children the chance to learn the guitar, keyboard, drums or vocals. By joining Rocksteady, your child gets the opportunity to build their confidence, learn an instrument and increase their overall enjoyment of school, which can have a positive effect on their other subjects. Rocksteady is easy and convenient; lessons take place within school hours (on either a Monday or Friday afternoon) and all the instruments are provided.

Music Tuition

During School lessons.

We offer small group tuition for Flute, Violin, Guitar and Keyboard. We expect that pupils will practise regularly, attend lessons regularly. Pupils will receive a minimum of 10 lessons per term. It will be necessary for your son/daughter to miss part of a normal lesson in order to attend their music lesson. You must notify us in writing if your child wishes to stop lessons. The yearly contract means that no refund can be given. If you would like to book your son/daughter a place please see reception for a letter.

Please contact the School Office.

The cost of instrumental tuition is heavily subsidised. The parental contribution towards the cost of the lessons per term will be £50, to be paid in advance.

 

  • Please check exactly when the club finishes and ensure you are there to collect your child on time.  The adult running the club will always wait until all children are collected, but it can be very distressing for a child to be left.
  • If the club is an independent outside club, please contact the club directly to advise if your child will not be attending the club.  Details of the clubs contact information are available on our website.
  • It will not be possible for children to go back to their classroom or locker after their club, please do not ask them to do so.
  • Make sure you know which exit they are coming out from and impress the need for them to wait inside school for you if you are a few minutes late.
