Lady Joanna Thornhill (Endowed) Primary School

Learning for the Head, Heart and Hand



At Lady Joanna Thornhill (Endowed) Primary School, we are committed to creating a love of music through wonderful opportunities to listen, explore, experience and devise a range of musical experiences as both a listener and performer. Through our challenging curriculum we ensure all children have access to the unique social, emotional and intellectual benefits achieved through musical excellence, driving their curiosity through both independent and collaborative work. Our children learn the fundamentals of music to a high and ambitious standard, including improvising and composing, responding and analysing music from different genres, countries, traditions and cultures and through history. We believe music is transformative and empowers our lives.  “The sheer joy of music making can feed the soul of a school community” (DfE)

I don’t sing because I am happy: I’m happy because I sing.” (William James)
