Ripon Cathedral ConcertRipon Cathedral ConcertIn Key Stage 2 all children learn a wind instrument during their music curriculum time and are taught by a specialist teacher. The school allows children to spend time trying different instruments before selecting the one they feel most comfortable with. The cost of the hire of instruments is covered by the school.


This initiative is now so successful that St Cuthbert’s School was asked to be part of the North Yorkshire Ofsted inspection for music which was graded ‘Outstanding’ and the school is now the only ‘Flagship’ school for music in North Yorkshire.


We are a North Yorkshire Flagship School for Music

All children in Y3, Y4, Y5 and Y6 learn a wind instrument. Music is taught by a specialist teacher and band practice is held weekly.  Both the school and the local community are very proud of our band which takes part in the Nidderdale show, the Saint Nicolas Fair, Late Night Shopping, Harrogate Festival and many other school events.  The band also go busking to raise money for charity.

Our children love making music together and tell us that performing is scary but the best fun!
