Gillas Lane Primary Academy and Nursery

Welcome to our school


Children in Year 2 and Year 4/5 receive Djembe Drumming lessons as part of the school curriculum. 

In Year 3/4 and Y1 & Y2 children are taught whole class singing by Eric, our specialist music teacher.  Since singing with Eric, the school choir, have taken part in both Carol singing for the local Nursing home and the opportunity to sing alongside a choir of children from Uganda in Africa.  We were so proud of those who took part, representing the school so brilliantly in their own time.  

Y3/4 and Y5/6 are learning how to play the recorder weekly with Rob the Music teacher.

Peripatetic music teachers also offer tuition in violin and brass during the school lunch period, the cost of these lessons are greatly subsided by the school.  If you would like your child to learn any of these instruments please contact the school office.
