Southborough Church of England Primary School



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....

News-summer 2023: Term 6 ended on a high with a triple bill….the year 3 recorder recital, the summer music concert and the year 6 production of ‘Once On This Island’ the musical.

We were thrilled with the music pouring out of the school at the end of last term. The students showed fantastic progress and it’s safe to say there wasn’t a dry eye in the house at the incredible performances witnessed!

The summer music concert featured the infant choir, the junior choir, the school orchestra and solo performances by those year 6 students studying an instrument at school. See below for some action shots!

Weekly class music lessons follow the fantastic curriculum of Kapow -take a look at the music curriculum here:


In addition to their class music lessons, students get a weekly singing assembly (collective worship) and the opportunity to take 1:1 and or group instrumental lessons as well as the opportunity to join one of our fantastic music clubs.
We currently have a thriving Junior choir that will be performing in the prestigious ‘Young Voices’ concert at the O2 Arena in January 2024.

We also have the years 2-3 choir and an Orchestra led by Mrs Hughes. New for this academic year will be a glockenspiel club and a worship choir.

Year 3 will all be learning to play the guitar this year and having lessons with our fantastic guitar teacher Henry from ‘Rock and Pop.’

We will continue to put on music concerts at the end of terms 2, 4 and 6. There will be the Christmas shows as well as the much-anticipated year 6 production at the end of the summer term.
