Trotts Hill Primary School and Nursery


"Music is a piece of art that goes in the ears straight to the heart".

Do you enjoy your music lessons?


"Yes because I love singing, dancing and performing." Bailey.


" Yes because not a single bit of music is boring!" Katy.


"Yes because I get to listen to different music and play different musical instruments!" Akira


The National Curriculum for music aims to ensure that all children:

 perform, listen to, review and evaluate music

 be taught to sing, create and compose music

 understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated


At Trotts Hill, children gain a firm understanding of what music is through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, and composing across historical periods, and musical genres.  We are committed to ensuring children understand the value and importance of music in the wider community and are able to use their musical skills, knowledge, and experiences to involve themselves in music, in a variety of different contexts.

During Arts Week, each year group from Nursery to Year 6 learnt a song to sing to another year group. Every year group also learnt Lean On Me and performed it to one another.

December 2019: Singing in the Local Community

The choir visited our local care home and sang a selection of Christmas Songs to the old people. It was lovely to see the old people smiling and joining in with Away In a Manger and Jiggle Bells. The children were treated to a drink and a biscuit and then they spent time talking to the old people before returning to school.

2019 - Stevenage Festival

The choir were invited to sing at the Stevenage Festival along with the other primary schools in Stevenage. They had to learn three songs to sing altogether as one large choir and we performed a song on our own. We had a great time and for some children this was the very first time they have ever performed on a stage.

2019 - Celebration Evening 

Trotts Hill had a wonderful Celebration of the Arts! This year we linked our celebration evening with our whole school celebration of 50 years! Each act was linked to a different decade. Everyone performed amazingly, and the parents even got involved for our last song! Everyone worked really hard and Trotts Hill truly showcased how talented they really are!

2019 - Young Voices at the O2

We had a fantastic time when a selection of year 5 and 6 children sang at the O2. We performed with over 8000 other children at the Young Voices Concert. On our evening we had a special guest Tony Hadley. We sang and danced the night away and although it was a really long day, we all had a fantastic time and it is something that we will remember for a very long time.
