Thank you to all our parents/carers and children for another successful year at Towngate Primary Academy. We hope you all have a lovely summer holiday.


Music is an integral and well-resourced part of life at Towngate. We want the music lessons to be fun and inspiring, engaging the children with songs, lyrics and movement.

We want the children to feel able and reflective and expressive, developing their own appreciation of music with the opportunities we provide as a school.

All children are actively encouraged and given the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument, from standard classroom instruments to individual instrumental lessons with the visiting peripatetic staff.

Musical opportunities in school include weekly class music lessons, whole class Samba (as a part of our Wider Opportunities sessions), School Choir, Young Voices and close links with schools in the Education Ossett Community Trust through annual EOCT Choir performances.
