We have a very active choir who meet after school on a Thursday.
The choir perform at a number of events throughout the year as well as sharing songs in school assemblies.
Children in Key Stage 2 at Gateway have the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument. We currently have visiting teachers for violin, piano and classical guitar, but others are possible if we have sufficient interest. If your child is interested please write a note to your class teacher for further information. Lessons are during the school day and fees are payable to Oxfordshire County Council.
Mrs Young our County Music Service string teacher has space in her timetable to start children on violin, viola or cello. The lessons start from £5.99 for a group of 3-4, but more children learning in a group can bring the costs down further. You do not have to have your own instrument as the music service can hire you one to start with. If your child is in year 1 or above and is interested in this offer you can register your interest (with no obligation) in two ways. Either register online at www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/musicinterest or let the school office know and they will pass your details on to Mrs Young. We hope to have some new students soon.
