The schools in the Corsham cluster have set up an inter-school sports league. The fixtures take place after school at The Corsham School. At each meeting, we play two games e.g. a 7-aside football match and a 5-aside hockey match. Each game lasts half an hour. Children need to bring trainers, a drink and some warm clothing; we provide shorts, shirts and socks.

Come and help make our garden grow on a Wednesday after school (weather permitting!). The children have made fantastic progress planting all the fruit trees bedding plants, vegetables and bulbs. Mums and dads also very much welcomed, bring your own tools if you can. No experience necessary.

We currently offer weekly guitar, keyboard, recorder, flute, saxophone, clarinet, violin and cello lessons.




Roz Osborne is happy to teach the violin to children from Yr 1 upwards.


Christine Moore teaches the cello to children from Year 1 upwards.



Each year we teach all children in Year 4 to play the recorder and learn to read music as part of their music lessons. Many of our children go on to play other instruments and they can continue to play the recorder as part of a lunch time club.


Woodwind – Flute, Clarinet and Saxophone
Gary Pike teaches the flute, clarinet or saxophone to children in Year 4 and above. At this age they are big enough for their fingers to reach all of the notes and make faster progress if they have learnt to play the recorder.


Martin Steward teaches electric and acoustic guitar to children from Year 3 upwards.


Children from Year 3 are able to have keyboard lessons, including piano skills, with Christine Moore. 


Weekly music lessons cost need to be paid for in advance by sending three post dated cheques dated 1st September, January and April which will be cashed during that month, or paying three instalments through the School Gateway. Please pop in and see Jo French if your child receives free school meals or payment of lessons is difficult.


The Wiltshire Music Connect has a supply of instruments that they are able to loan out, mainly violins, cellos and guitars. Woodwind instruments and keyboards are more scarce and may need to be provided by parents. Instruments of good quality can be purchased through various ‘assisted purchase schemes’ except keyboards. All of our instrumental teachers are happy to recommend makes/models and advise on prices.


We make every effort to keep instruments safe but cannot accept responsibility for them and we do not have insurance which covers privately owned or hired instruments so please make sure your child’s instrument is covered by your home insurance. It is important that if your child is considering playing an instrument that they understand the commitment they will need to make to practise regularly, look after their instrument and attend weekly lessons.

Orchestra takes place during lunchtime, from 12.30-1:00 in the group room.


We will give the children a copy of the music to keep at home, so that they can practice. We no longer ask them to bring these copies into school each week, as we have copies ready for them to use within orchestra practices. It is important for the children to attend and bring their instruments with them each week!
