Music at The Minster

"I’ve enjoyed playing different instruments at the Junior School. Playing musical instruments is a different skill. When we’re older, we might be able to join an orchestra"... Year 3 pupil

Music is an everyday part of The Minster Junior School life!

We are proud to say that every child in Year 3 learns either a cello or violin as part of the Croydon Sound Start Project. The other year groups have special termly music days during which they are able to learn about, listen to and compose and perform music related to their topic work.  We also offer piano lessons. 

All children may join a choir which is drawn together for special events such as the Christmas fair or services in the Minster.​ We aim to share our musical activities with the wider community for example at Croydon Minster or local schools. We also have visiting music teachers from local secondary schools for enrichment workshops.

As a Church of England school, we hold daily worship during which we learn and sing a range of songs and hymns related to our faith.  We enjoy more popular and current songs too!
