Wherever you are in NGHS, you can always hear Music playing. It’s the drumbeat of our school.
Music every day
In our Infant and Junior School, 95% of our girls play an instrument. Our Da Capo Music Programme for Reception to Year 2 enables girls to trial lessons across a range of instruments.
This means many of our girls are inspired from an early age, and make informed choices about what they would like to pursue and where their strengths lie.
Girls continue their Music lessons through the Senior School. We encourage them to embrace and enjoy this opportunity as it’s so important to a holistic education and wellbeing. Many of our girls perform in our musical productions, orchestras, bands and groups. We deliberately offer a range of music styles to inspire and encourage all tastes, from traditional orchestra to rock band, there’s always something fabulous to listen to. Even our common spaces have pianos in them so the girls can play whenever they’re in the mood.
The sound of girls’ voices also fills our halls. We have choirs and singing groups across the school and our staff choir also sing their hearts out at special occasions and celebration events, often to a standing ovation from the girls.
