Music at Althorpe and Keadby Primary is taught by a music specialist across Key Stage One and Two. 

We have our own school choir who meet weekly to develop their passion, skill and technique in singing.

We strongly believe in the importance of sharing music within the local community. We have established links with a local hospice and care homes where our choir share their progress.
