Musical beginnings
Music plays a big part in Orchard life. In the Foundation Stage children learn nursery rhymes and songs, while the whole school sings together every week. In Reception and Years 1 and 2 there are weekly music lessons with the Prep School’s Director of Music. In Year 2 boys and girls can choose to start to play an instrument as an extra.

All Orchard children are encouraged to enjoy performing and there are many opportunities to display new skills in assemblies, concerts, church services and the annual Christmas performance.
