Our Work with Schools
We expect to return to live schools’ events in 2022. A Schools’ Prom including groups from local primary and secondary schools has long been part of Proms week. Participating schools receive in-school workshops during the summer term to enable them to prepare for the individual and massed performances in St Jude’s. Unfortunately, Covid rules prevented us from hosting in-person Schools’ Proms in 2020 or 2021, but our short 2019 Schools’ Prom film gives an example of the style and quality of the projects that we offer.
In 2020, as part of Proms at Home we produced recorded events for use with both primary and secondary age groups. These can be found on our Resources page and will be suitable for schools, home educators and families. whilst In 2021, we produced an acclaimed performance of ‘In Time’. The piece was specially composed for children (Years 2 to 6 - 7 to 11 year olds) to introduce them to the orchestra and a range of music through time. The story follows Polly and her grandmother on this journey through musical time. The work was recorded by Fantasia Orchestra.
Both the recording and a range of cross-curricular support materials are available free to use for schools, home-schoolers and families looking for rainy day entertainment! Click here for the recording of In Time and here for supporting resources.
