Fairstead House Open Event
6th October 2023
What Makes us Special
Music and drama
The creative arts are a real source of pride at Fairstead
We excel especially in music and drama. Our Performing Arts Centre is amazingly well kitted out with everything from African drums to ukuleles. There is also a full lighting and sound rig. Pupils love both being in the spotlight and learning how a well-designed lighting scheme can help bring a performance to life.
All pupils from Yearlings to Year 6 enjoy two music lessons a week. 75% of pupils from Year 1 upwards learn an instrument or take vocal studies. Children from across the school regularly practise and perform together as part of the school orchestra, Chamber and Christmas Choirs and Junior Choir.
“One of my best moments has to be when my dog Dave joined me on stage in the amazing production of Annie Junior. Thank you to Mrs Warburton and Mrs Cocks for giving him his big break and believing in him. His moment of fame has slightly gone to his head.”
Regular open days at Fairstead House allow prospective parents and pupils to view the school and grounds whilst meeting existing pupils and staff
