Westminster Cathedral

Catholic Primary School

Founded by
The Jesuit Fathers circa 1849



Our aim in Music is to stimulate a life-long appreciation for music and for our pupils to develop an understanding of music and develop their skills as performers and composers. We work closely with the Tri-borough Music Hub and Pimlico Musical Foundation.

Each class receives specialist music teaching each week focusing on three areas of performing, composing and appraising. The children experience a broad spectrum of musical genres.

Year 2 receive weekly stringed instrument lessons where each child learns to play a violin, viola, cello or double bass. Year 4 receive choral lessons each week where the children are taught the skills to sing.

Westminster Cathedral Primary School offers a range of instrumental lessons from Year 3. We have three peripatetic instrumental teachers that visit the school who teach piano, guitar and violin, viola, cello, flute, clarinet and the bells.

Music is strong in the wider curriculum. We have a school choir who have performed in a variety of concerts and represented the school in a variety of local community events. We have an orchestra where the pupils learn to work collaboratively playing their own instrument.

 Children from our school are part of the Pimlico Musical Foundation Choir and Young Scholars. For more information please see,
