Music is an important part of the curriculum and school life at Southborough Church of England Primary School. In addition to weekly class based music lessons, involving composing, performing, listening and appraising, musical activities take on a variety of guises throughout the school. See below for examples of the fantastic music opportunities and latest performances....

The Spring term has been hugely exciting musically. We now boast 8 (free of charge) music clubs: Year 1 Choir, Years 2-3 Choir, Years 4-6 Choir, Chamber Choir, Orchestra club, Glockenspiel club, Arts Ambassadors and a brand new staff choir!

In January our years 4-6 choir which has 65 members performed to a sold out audience at London's iconic O2 arena! They performed as part of Young Voices 2024-the world's largest children's choir with 8 and a half thousand children singing together! The children are still buzzing about the experience now. See below for pictures of the special day and night!

We also held our Spring Music Concerts. The children have progressed a lot this term and grown in confidence. They performed to a public audience. See the video below of our years 2-3 choir performing 'True Colours.'
