Music and drama play an important part in the life of the School and parents are invited to attend a range of events during the year including the Pre-Prep Nativity Play, Form assemblies, musical concerts and the Preparatory Department production.
The majority of girls in the Preparatory Department participate in one or more choirs and many play at least one musical instrument. Girls have the opportunity to join the Prep Department orchestra and whole school Wind Band. Musical instrument tuition is available from Year 3 upwards, and we currently offer lessons in the following instruments:
Bassoon, cello, clarinet, cornet, drums, flute, French horn, guitar, harp, oboe, piano, recorder, saxophone, singing, steel drums (groups, Year 5 and 6 only), Music theory, trombone, trumpet, tuba, and violin.
Group Speech and Drama lessons are available from Year 3 upwards, leading towards graded examinations (either English Speaking Board examinations in Speech and Drama, or LAMDA examinations in Performance). Lessons are available either before school or on a rota during the school day (at times to cause minimum disruption to lessons).
I believe that RMS offers true education to its girls, academic, social and emotional. My daughter has benefitted hugely from what it offers, she has grown into a confident, capable and very respectful young lady Parent
