Our newly extended Art and Textiles room reflects the strong creative tradition at Babington House and the girls and boys are encouraged to express themselves through photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, construction and fashion design. The imaginative use of art and textiles is often used by other academic disciplines, such as using mathematical geometry to design and make cushions and helps to provide vibrancy in all subjects.
We have an impressive prep school choir and whole school choir.
Pupils are encouraged to develop a wide range of musical skills through performance, composition and to listen to music of all genres including world music. Most importantly, pupils are encouraged to enjoy their musical activities. The brand new music building offers the most up-to-date music technology, enabling pupils to develop their writing skills in composition.
A large number of pupils learn a musical instrument or have vocal training. A team of professional musicians (peripatetic staff) offer pupils opportunities in vocal and instrumental training, where success in graded examinations is encouraged.
If you would like your child to sign up to music, singing or elocution lessons, please contact Mrs S Mean on email@example.com for an application form. All our music, singing and elocution lessons are conducted through individual teachers directly and parents will be invoiced by the tutor. Accompanying the application form will be a parent consent form which will be forwarded to the tutor and will allow direct communication between parent and tutor. Regular updates on your child’s progress can be obtained by contacting the tutor via their email.
The older girls from the Senior School help direct and manage the Prep Department performances, assisting our committed and highly qualified staff. The whole school shows and plays are a real highlight of the year, as is the Prep Musical at the end of the Summer Term.
The beautiful new drama facilities and theatre are always buzzing with lessons, workshops, rehearsals and performances. Whether behind the scenes, manipulating the state of the art lighting and sound facilities, in the chorus or centre stage in a leading role, everyone at Babington House Prep has the opportunity to get involved with drama.
