Music at St James's
St James’s School has its own dedicated Music Director who is responsible for all aspects of music within the school. These include;
Infant Choir for Years 1 & 2

In Year 3, all children have the opportunity to learn a string instrument which is taught in their weekly music lessons. There is a small fee attached to this activity.
In Years 5 & 6, all children get the chance to learn to play both the recorder and the ukulele.
Individual or shared private lessons are given by a team of peripatetic staff who work closely with the Music Director.
Other fee paying activities are:
Jammin’ Together rock and pop music weekly sessions are run by a talented and experienced musician both at lunchtime and after school.
M:Tech takes place over several lunchtimes in the ICT room and is run by an expert music technology company.
The following songs were recorded by the Nota Bene Choir. We have entered them in the 'Songs Of Praise' Junior Choir competition.
