Performing Arts

Music is written into the DNA of Sir William Burrough School. In addition to the music appreciation and composition coverage which appears in Cornerstones Curriculum 22, children enjoy a lively and progressive curriculum of performing arts taught by specialist teachers. The Early Years and Key Stage One have a lesson of singing, music and dance weekly where they learn a variety of songs and movement routines. In Key Stage 2 every class has an hour a week (on a half-termly rotation) of dance and recorder lessons.

Beyond the taught curriculum, the whole school have a weekly joyful singing assembly and each key stage has a further singing assembly, which draws on music from a variety of traditions. There is a thriving school choir, open to Key Stage 2 children, which performs at a variety of prestigious occasions and places and a school dance troupe made up of Year 5 and 6 children which tackles challenging and emotional routines.
