MUSIC

  • Music at LPSS.

    At LPSS , we believe that music contributes to the personal development of our students. It stimulates the acquisition of many skills, attitudes and attributes which can be transferred to other areas of experience and learning. The talents developed through our Music and performing arts activities add a further dimension to the lives of pupils at LPSS.

    At LPSS, we follow the English National Curriculum in the Early years, KS 1 and KS 2 and at KS3 level, we build on the skills acquired to prepare the students for the Cambridge IGCSE Music syllabus. From Year 10, students can opt to take music as one of their IGCSE subjects and their ABRSM theory and practical work goes a long way in boosting their IGCSE music performance.

    Every child takes part in the weekly music lessons at LPSS and has the opportunity to perform, dance, sing, play a musical instrument or exhibit their acting skills in one or more of our regular, eagerly-anticipated stage productions, House song festivals, Talent Hunt and Music Recitals. Our primary and secondary choirs rehearse every Monday after school and prepare to perform at these events, sometimes sharing the stage with our Community Choir of staff and parents.

    We take pride in having a unique and dynamic Music Department with over 35 students having one on one instrumental and/or voice lessons every week from full time and specialist visiting teachers. These students are encouraged to take the ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royals Schools of Music UK) practical and theory exams and LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) exams every year. We offer ABRSM Theory classes every Thursday morning and our students recently recorded 100% pass rate with 82% as the lowest score attained.

    The Music rooms resonates with the sound of the widest and richest variety of exciting music throughout the day. Music provides opportunities and links between home, school and the community at large, introduces students to different forms of music-making and encourages objective judgement of musical quality.
