Music at St Nicholas! 

At St Nicholas we  buy into the Charanga music scheme , an interactive programme that  introduces  the children to a variety of different music styles. All pupils are encouraged to listen to musical extracts from different times and cultures and evaluate their own feelings about the music.

Many of our children sing or play an instrument at St Nicholas.

We currently have a wonderful group of peripatetic teachers who offer tuition in:

  • Piano
  • Guitar
  • Recorders

We also have a very successful school choir  and every year they get an opportunity to perform at the annual choral day at Clayesmore. They are led by two of our parents, Mr Blake and Mrs Horner who work their magic every Monday after school! They really do inspire the children and the sound they produce is wonderful!

Throughout the year we hold short musical assemblies.This gives the children an opportunity to perform in front of an  audience before taking to big the stage, for our annual musical evening, in the Summer Term.

Our Year 4 pupils also receive a term of musical tuition from the Dorset Music Service and six of these pupils then receive further free tuition for a term, in year 5.

If you are interested in your children learning an instrument please contact the school office.

In the Summer term St Nicholas hosts the Year 4 Singing Day . Children from our pyramid schools come together to make music. It is always a memorable event that inspires all the children and staff!
