Music | Co-curricular | Hurst Senior Prep School



There is almost no end to the music-making possibilities at Hurst Senior Prep, and many children have individual music tuition.

All pupils will take the opportunity to sing in a choir during their time at Hurst. We have three choirs in the Senior Prep School:

  • Chamber Choir
  • Chapel Choir (Years 7 to 8)
  • Show Choir

Several music groups for instrumentalists are available to pupils at all levels to join. These include an orchestra, jazz band, brass group, flute group, guitar group, string group and samba band – our thriving school orchestra is open to all pupils of grade 1+ ability.

Pupils learning a musical instrument are encouraged to participate in these ensembles to further enrich their musical experiences. With many opportunities for pupils to perform during the school year, all children are encouraged to take part. They are also offered the opportunity to perform in assembly and classes. Those who learn an individual instrument are invited to perform in termly informal concerts, and the ensemble groups take part in whole-school bi-annual concerts.
