As part of our commitment to helping children achieve their utmost we provide a wide range of music tuition. We have a close partnership with Hounslow Music Service who provide excellent extra curricular teaching for a wide range of musical instruments. Our children currently have the opportunity to learn violin, voila, cello, double bass, guitar, trumpet, saxophone, French horn and drums. Many children chose to play in the Hounslow brass band and regularly perform in concerts. We have a strong choir who meet weekly and perform annually in the Hounslow Summer Festival. All children learn to play the African Drums during their time at Strand and our drummers perform regularly, last year opening a conference of National College of School Leadership.We are keen to take advantage of any opportunity at Strand and have worked in partnership with a local secondary school, Lampton and the Royal Shakespeare Company to put on a production of King Lear. Projects in recent years include Henry VI, again with the RSC, debating competitions and inter school maths challenges, not to mention a wide range of sporting activities.
