All the children from kindergarten to year 6 receive weekly music lessons and from year 2 everyone receives recorder lessons too. We have a wide range of specialist music teachers and our children can choose to play a wide range of instruments, including piano, flute, saxophone, clarinet, drums and guitar. Our recorder group performs regularly at school functions as well as for local residential care homes at Christmas and Easter.


Our LAMDA Speech and Drama lessons are a firm favourite with many of our pupils and all the children enjoy performing the Christmas plays for their families and staff. Pupils at Salterford House are also able to take part in our drama club, putting on a full scale, musical production each Easter as well as opting to enter LAMDA examinations that are held twice a year. Another highlight for the children is taking part in the annual ISA drama festival, in which we have won many trophies over recent years, including prizes for the best musical 12 years running. Many of our children have received national awards for their individual performances and we have a number of students who go on to secondary schools with drama scholarships. Drama is a real strength of the school.
