Music is an integral part of life at The Gleddings School. We aim to engender in our children a love of music which they will retain for life. We know that music helps our children to gain self-confidence, interact socially with their peers and other age groups and develop their creativity, which in turn helps their progress in other areas of the curriculum.
Choral music and specialist instrumental tuition
Singing is an important part of the school day and approximately two thirds of children have individual lessons with specialist music teachers. Piano, guitar, violin, woodwind, brass, percussion and singing tuition is available. There is a school orchestra, brass band, string group, KS1 and KS2 choirs, and all children in Years 3 and 4 learn to play the recorder.
All children participate in regular musical events, both in school and at external venues including the Dean Clough Viaduct Theatre and the Halifax Minster. Many pupils return for lessons after leaving The Gleddings, and can often be seen providing support at these events, along with family members.
