Music and Drama
Our children benefit from weekly lessons in music and drama, delivered by specialist teachers. Every year, we hold a Prep and Junior show, the latter being held at the prestigious Theatre Royal in Margate. We offer the finest teaching in Elocution leading up to our highly anticipated Elocution Cup competition where children recite poetry of their choice. We participate in many local events including the Thanet Music Festival, the Thanet Speech Festival and the Festival of Song with many of our children reaching Distinction Level. Several of our children take part in LAMDA achieving much acclaim in the local community.
In music, our children develop an appreciation of a range of genres of music and are exposed to several musical instruments. We encourage children to focus on the work of great musicians for inspiration and exploration, and to build up a repertoire of techniques and approaches that they can apply in their own compositions. Children can deepen their knowledge by taking part in the wide array of individual lessons in piano, guitar and violin. Specialist vocal coaching lessons are also available. Our choir take part in many local events including the Dickens Festival and they often sing for the elderly at various retirement homes.
