St Clare's School is proud to be a Stave House Music school. Stave House is a method of teaching children to read, compose and play music and children from Year 2 onwards have the opportunity to take Stave House Awards which are The Stave House method is accredited and certified by the London College of Music. This not only affirms the quality of the Stave House teaching, it also means that along the way children will have the opportunity to mark progress and obtain recognition by taking awards and receiving certificates!
Our music is progressive and we start right down in the Nursery, moving, playing and singing, progressing with our Stave House skills right up to Year 6 where children read, compose and play music fluently.
Instrumental Lessons: All children in the school have the opportunity to play musical instruments on a weekly basis in their music lessons. In Lower Key Stage 2 the children have the opportunity to learn the recorder in their weekly music lessons and Upper Key Stage 2 children learn brass and ukelele.
We also have a school choir. We take part in many events both in school and in the wider community, including singing Old People's Homes and at our Christmas Fayre. This year will be our third year of taking a choir to the London O2 to take part in Young Voices.
