Music plays a central role in school life and from an early age pupils participate in a variety of musical events and activities.
Instrumental lessons, singing, LAMDA, musical theatre and dance are also offered ensuring that school plays, concerts, and performances are packed with talent and enthusiasm.

The school has a thriving music department. All children attend weekly music lessons from the age of two in the state-of-the-art music technology centre. On leaving year 6, every child is able to competently read music and have experience of playing a musical instrument.

Children also have opportunities to learn to play an array of musical instruments, supported by a team of peripatetic tutors, including piano, violin, recorder, flute, clarinet, saxophone, drums, trumpet and trombone.

Children at St Pius have a real passion for both art and design technology. Our stunning art room has facilities for ceramics, print and, of course, drawing and painting. In addition to timetabled art lessons, there is a flourishing art club, where pupils are encouraged to develop creativity.

At St Pius we offer tuition in a range of musical instruments:

  • Violin
  • Guitar

Lessons are offered on a private fee basis; the amount varies from teacher to teacher but is normally in the range of £13-£15 per half-hour lesson.

The school boasts an Orchestra, a choir and a creative approach to popular music. We also hold regular concerts which parents and relatives can attend.
