Newsletter - May 2017

Letters have been going home over the last couple of weeks with important information for the remaining weeks of this term. If you haven't seen sight of this yet,  (deep at the bottom of the book bags?) don't worry, all the information can be found below. 


It’s been a busy year for exams with sessions taking place each term and we still have more exams to come. Guitar, Vocals, and Trinity Piano exams will take place in June and July and we expect to receive dates and times within the next few weeks for those students who were entered at the start of the April.

Summer Performance

After the success of the Annual Concerts at the Gatehouse in March, we wanted to add an event to the summer term to give those students wanting to perform solo or in a smaller group, the opportunity to do so.

At the Gatehouse shows, we have live ‘band’ performances, where students play in larger groups with a live drummer and full band. This allows us to offer all of students the chance to perform live and get real experience of playing with other musicians in a typical band scenario.

On Sunday 9th July, we have hired St Mary’s Church from 2pm-4.30pm and will have a selection of solo performers and small groups on vocals, guitar, piano and keyboard, followed by refreshments. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate all of the students in the school at this event as there simply isn’t enough time, but please do let us know if you would like to take part. To cover costs, there will be a minimal ticket charge of £2.50 per adult ticket and no charge for performers or children. Tickets will go on sale week commencing Monday 12th June.


Towards the end of June, we will be sending out information for re-enrolment in September, along with term dates for the next academic year. All enrolment forms and Standing order forms will need to be returned before we break up on Friday 28th July and if any students require an alternative class or lesson time from September, we would ask you to give us as much notice as possible to make these arrangements.


Don’t forget, important information and term dates can be found on our website and our Facebook and Twitter pages are regularly updated.

If you have any questions or queries at all, please get in touch.
