At Ripley Court, our passion for music is reflected in our varying ensembles and performances across the academic year. Music plays a prominent role in the daily life of our School. Lessons are taught by our Head of Music in our purpose-built Music Room.

We have a well-equipped department with various of instruments available for classwork, including Ukuleles, a Samba Kit, Djembe Drums. An iMac suite equipped with GarageBand and midi keyboards allow our children to explore digital music-making.

We have a wide variety of performance opportunities for our children, including:

  • Weekly assembly performances
  • Teatime Concerts – a comfortable performance opportunity for soloists of all levels
  • Christmas Carol Services
  • Summer Concert
  • (Annual) House Music Competition
  • Local music festivals and fundraising events (and performances in the local community)

Beyond the classroom, our children are supported by a dedicated team of 10 peripatetic instrumental tutors who offer a variety of instrumental lessons every week. All pupils have the option of learning a musical instrument in school with one of these inspiring tutors. Instrumental lessons are organised by weekly rotation to minimise any disruption to their academic lessons.

Lessons include:

  • Practical, hands-on music-making
  • Foundational development of Music theory
  • Listening skills
  • Creative group projects
