St James C of E Primary School

Learning to live, living to learn, learning from Christ


At St James Primary, music is one of our passions and we love every opportunity to introduce of children to all forms of it - from our hugely popular community choir to our ukulele lunchtime club.

Our Community Choir

We have a very active community choir and practice together every Thursday morning.  We perform at our church services at St James and have sung at a range of charity events and school fairs.  It's open to everyone who loves to sing and you can ask Mr Renwick and Mrs Garrad for more details.


As part of our enriched curriculum for Year 4 - who aim this year is to 'become musicians' - the the class are taking part in goup musical instrument lessons where they are learning the recorder with a teacher from the North London Music academy

Haringey Music Lessons

At St James Primary we work in close partnership with Haringey Music Services.  Every day we have tutors in to teach children in one to one or small group session in instruments such as the drums, guitar, violin, piano and flute.  If you would like more information on how to arrange a music lesson for your child, visit Haringey Music Services

Music for our younger classes

On Monday afternoons, our EYFS and Key Stage 1 classes have music lessons with a very experienced Haringey music teacher, Miss Short.  They have been learning ‘call and response songs’ where children are chosen to lead the ‘call’ part of the song and the rest of the class respond with singing, clapping or actions.  



We run a very popular Ukulele lunchtime club for Reception to Year 2 on a Wednesday.

Shows and Performances

Whether it's our Nativity, our end of Year 6 show or our termly class assembly we love to sing and perform in front of our parents and families.  It helps us to build our confidence and get creative!
