Chilwell Croft Academy has had a tradition for many years of being a musical school and we are very proud of this.
We work closely with the Services for Education music staff to provide a variety of musical experiences for the children. These range from whole class instrument and singing lessons to key stage one and two singing assemblies and to a choir club at dinner time and elective lessons after school. The singing assemblies are amazing to hear and watch, with all children engaged and children singing together, bringing a great sense of community to the school.
We provide different instruments for children to learn in whole class instrument lessons: a variety of brass instruments; violins and cellos. We give the children the opportunity to perform in assemblies, sharing their learning with other children and parents.
Also, the choir perform every year at the Symphony Hall in the summer term alongside many other schools,which is a wonderful experience, under the guidance of our fantastic vocal skills teacher Mrs Rebecca Prentice.
