Music forms an integral role in the life of Putney High School. Each class has two weekly music lessons with the Junior School Director of Music. Singing in harmony is developed from an early age and musical performance is a natural feature of school life. The vast majority of Key Stage 2 girls learn one or more musical instruments and there is an open invitation to present in assembly, boosting confidence and nurturing a love of performance.
The orchestra attracts more than 50 girls. The choir for all girls in Years 5 and 6 has been runner-up in the BBC Songs of Praise Choir of the Year competition three times and is regularly asked to perform at events in London and further afield. All girls are invited to perform informally in assembly and other events include the Valentine Music Festival, the Speaking and Listening Festival and Christmas and summer productions.
See our Junior School Choir perform in the 2013 finals of the BBC Songs of Praise Choir of the Year competition, the third time in five years that they have earned such an honour.
