Music - Sydenham High School


Whilst specialist music teaching is provided to all Prep School pupils from Reception, this is only the start of the exciting musical opportunities we offer.

Our Co-Curricular Clubs programme offers a range of choir, ensemble and percussion groups for pupils to join as well as a range of one-to-one peripatetic music teaching. Many of our pupils study Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) examinations in a variety of instruments including strings, woodwind and brass.

In a prep music lesson, young pupils took charge of making decisions about the tone of voice and physical gestures to be used to add extra expression to their singing

Pupils working beyond Grade 1 are welcome to apply for a place in our vibrant Prep School Orchestra.

Each term, we host formal and informal performances in which pupils not only showcase their talents but develop the confidence to perform before an audience. All pupils from years 3-6 belong to a choir and pupils in year 5 and year 6 can audition for a place in our Chamber Choir.

We aim to foster a love of music-making among all our pupils. We are proud that our programme offers opportunities open to all as well as audition-only activities which allow us to pursue an exceptionally high standard of musical accomplishment.
