Gifted Musicians Programme

Each spring term we hold a series of cross arts workshops for pupils who are gifted in the arts - including those who show an inate sense of musicianship without necessarily playing an instrument.

Currently fully funded

For pupils who play and instrument already (are having lessons) or want to sing, we have the Slough Music Centre, held at Beechwood School from 3.50pm - 6.15pm on Thursdays during term time.  We work towards end of term performances and additional events. 

Charged directly to parents

We hold a range of events throughout the year. The singing festival in November (KS1&2), the Slough Music & Arts Festival in March (all phases) and one-day events such as Singing from Scratch. See the events listings or contact us for details
