Instrumental lessons are provided at Newlands through Berkshire Maestros.  Singing lessons are provide in-house by Mrs Barbara Clarkson.


A large and varied programme of extra-curricular activities is offered by the Department throughout the week for pupils to get involved in.  There are regular opportunities to perform in fortnightly assemblies and regular concerts.  The Department also runs an annual European tour to give the girls a chance to perform in a new and exciting environment.  Recent destinations have included Belgium, Holland and Germany and there are plans to run a trip to Spain in July 2017.
