Beatrix Potter School



“Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind and flight to the imagination,” Plato

Music is a very important part of the Beatrix Potter experience because it combines so many disciplines, is proven to sharpen thinking across the board, and offers both the player and the listener so much enjoyment.

We have a music specialist teacher who works with all year groups once a week. The children learn composition, notation, rhythm and performance using ukuleles, recorders, tuned percussion and voice.  

Every end of term we put on a performance and it is a much treasured experience for our parents and carers too.

We have a wide range of musical instruments that the children can learn with our peripatetic teaching team and these include:

  • Cello (from KS1)
  • Clarinet (from KS2)
  • Drums (any age)
  • Flute (from KS2)
  • Guitars (from KS2)
  • Harp (from KS1) (supported by the CYM - Centre for Young Musicians)
  • Piano (from KS2)
  • Saxophone (from KS2)
  • Violins (from Year 2)

Our wide ranging music offer began in 2021-2022. As learners progress they can join our fabulous orchestra!
