Copthill Icon – notes


The Music Department at Copthill is a hive of activity with whole class music lessons from Nursery to Year Six themed to the school’s creative curriculum. Children also enjoy whole class instrumental sessions on strings, woodwind and percussion. From piano, strings, woodwind, brass, percussion,  singing and theory, a large number of children receive individual tuition, by a fabulous team of talented and inspirational teachers who teach from beginner to scholarship level. Music-making opportunities abound with many ensembles that encompass a wide range of instruments and genres from choral to heavy metal! Our children love performing both in school and on tour, from intimate afternoon tea concerts for debut performers to grand scale arenas and a particular favourite is the weekly dining room lunchtime recital.

Drama is taught in many different forms throughout the school. Learning activities are designed to encourage children to build self-confidence, develop creativity and communication skills and to learn to work effectively as part of a team.

More than 50 pupils study speech and drama as an additional subject, achieving excellent results in LAMDA examinations.  Weekly sessions are designed to encourage pupils to build on their self-confidence and public speaking.
