Horniman is a musical school!

Music is taught by specialist music teachers.

All children have whole class music sessions, and small group composition sessions.

There are also weekly singing assemblies, in which children learn seasonal songs and songs linked to their topics.

All children in KS2 learn the recorder. 

Children have the opportunity to perform in assemblies throughout the year.

We also encourage children to learn an instrument, which is taught by specialist teachers. Children currently learn guitar, woodwind and violin.

We also invite musicians to play during special assemblies.



Horniman Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
