Performing Arts in Reception

Skippers Hill has a strong tradition of excellence in the performing arts, with many of our senior pupils gaining Performing Arts Scholarships to their secondary school of choice.  Reception pupils take part in several performances to parents during the school year, including our annual production of ‘Christmas with the Early Years’.  All Early Years and Junior pupils gather together for a weekly Singing Assembly, led by Miss Hemsley, in which they learn and rehearse a variety of songs, some for fun and some to be performed.


Drama is embedded within the EYFS curriculum and is taught by the class teacher in a cross-curricular style throughout the Reception year.  


During Reception your child will take part in music lessons with our specialist teacher, Mrs Carolyn Holleyman.  In Year 1 the children have weekly recorder lessons and Choir with Mrs Holleyman as part of the music curriculum.  As your child moves further up the school, opportunities for individual music tuition on a wide variety of instruments, with visiting music teachers, become available for an additional charge.

Ballet and Tap

Ballet lessons with Mrs Anita Gunn (ISTD) and Tap lessons with East Sussex Dance Studios are available as an optional extra for an additional charge.
