All Tormead Prep and Pre-Prep girls participate in music lessons with specialist teachers from Reception to Year 6.
Extra-curricular music at Tormead Prep is lively and flourishing and involves pupils from across the whole age range of the school working together. We offer a wide range of opportunities in which all girls are encouraged to participate at a level appropriate to her ability.
We aim for all girls to be musically literate
Music performance plays a very important part in the lives of Tormead Prep School girls and the joy of being able to share music with others is something very special. Whilst many of our girls become highly accomplished musicians, we aim for all girls to be musically literate and provide a range of performance opportunities.
All Tormead Prep and Pre-Prep girls enjoy drama lessons within the curriculum. Lessons encourage girls to be imaginative and to think and act creatively, to explore and to speak, listen and respond to each other. We aim to develop the life-long skills of self-confidence, enquiry, empathy and collaboration. In curriculum drama, all the girls can become involved in the process where they make decisions and shape their own work.
Performance is an important part of drama and all girls from Reception to Year 6 ‘trip the light fantastic’ each term in class assemblies and in the annual House poetry event. The girls are also given the opportunity to be part of a performance/production with the following opportunities throughout the year groups:
We actively incorporate visiting theatre groups and external visits to theatre productions in our calendar thus providing our girls with a love of the performing arts.
All pupils are encouraged to develop their speaking and listening skills and extra-curricular drama clubs are available to girls in Prep and Pre-Prep.
The London Academy of Music, Drama and Art (LAMDA) is a prestigious organisation, which provides training for the performing arts. Girls from Years 3 to 6 can undertake weekly tuition in communication and performance and work towards attaining qualifications at the end of each year.
