Music Lessons Booster

Pupils at Nightingale Community Academy have been given a boost to their music lessons by a visit from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Musicians came and worked with the pupils for three days on a special project which involved the children having the opportunity to listen to world class performances and try many different instruments for themselves.

The school has been awarded a Music Mark by Wandsworth Music Alliance and the ABRSM due to its commitment to provide a high-quality music education for its leaners. Pupils take part in weekly singing lessons and have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument.

Teacher and Music Lead, Luke Kilkelly said: “We are very passionate about developing Music, as it is so beneficial for our learners in so many ways.  Music is a real outlet and opportunity for them to succeed.”

Sonny, one of the pupils involved said: “I like singing and dancing in our music lessons. My favourite is when I can play the electronic keyboard because I can do lots of cool stuff on it.”

The school have achieved a lot in a relatively short time, and is looking to build on the progress  already made by increasing the hours of instrument lessons, they can offer to pupils.

 

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
