The Hills Are Alive....... !

lAt Trimdon Grange we pride ourselves on an inclusive music curriculum.


Everybody sings, everybody plays, everybody joins in ! We love to make music together !


We strive for the highest levels of skill and confidence in these very young children.


We work closely with Durham Music Service and Durham Cathedral Music Outreach to give our children access to expert tuition. This supplements and complements the work carried out by our own staff team. We have also been involved with the Sightlines Initiative supporting small groups of children in their compositions.


A school choir meets every Wednesday in the school hall. Some of our young children also song with the Young Minstrels at Durham Cathedral every Saturday Morning.


During the Autumn and Spring Term the Year 2 children have the opportunity to learn to play the Descant Recorder in an after school club and to consolidate their notation reading skills taught in whole class lessons.


Our Reception children can enjoy some skill building games at Rhythm and Rhyme Club during the Spring Term and join the school choir in the Summer Term if they wish.
