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.
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.
