Music making is a very important part of life at The Old School Henstead. The School Choir rehearses every week and leads the singing in the daily assembly and at our regular services at St Mary’s Church. In addition to this we have, over the years, been very proud of the achievements of the choir at local, regional and national music festivals. The choir also frequently sings at local events. Recently they sang at our charity concert in aid of CLIC Sargent, at Christmas carol services around the region and for Children in Need. This year the school will organise a concert in aid of East Anglian Air Ambulance.
Every child also has weekly music lessons with our specialist music teachers. Children all learn to play the recorder during these lessons and many children also take advantage of the many peripatetic music teachers who visit the school to receive specialist tuition in piano, voice, woodwind, brass, strings, guitar and percussion.
