Peripatetic Music

In addition to our curricular music lessons and our extracurricular school clubs such as choir, instrumental lessons are supplied to Overstone Primary School through the Northamptonshire Music Service at a cost to parents. The instrumental lessons are arranged according to the interest expressed by pupils.

We also take part in the Northamptonshire Music Service’s First Access Project. Here, a whole class of pupils is taught an instrument, free of charge, for a period of 10 weeks. Through the project, many of them develop a love of music and they often continue with the instrument they have learnt. These have included ukuleles, recorders and samba drums.


Every child has something that they enjoy and can do well at. Here at Overstone, we believe that giving children opportunities to experience a wide variety of activities will ensure that they will find the things that they enjoy and excel in. They will also make some great memories!
