Music

The LES Music School occupies its own state-of-the-art building in the centre of the Loughborough Endowed Schools’ campus. It is an outstanding facility comprising four classrooms, two ICT suites, 22 individual teaching studios and a 120 seat recital hall. It serves all four schools and is currently home to seven academic staff, six administrative staff and 26 individual instrumental tutors.

In September 2015, Loughborough Endowed Schools became an All-Steinway School. a demonstration of its commitment to providing pupils with the very best instruments on which to learn, practise and perform. It is the only All-Steinway School in the Midlands and one of only 13 independent schools in the UK and 175 organisations worldwide to hold the accolade.

All classes at Fairfield receive class music lessons from a specialist teacher as well as a wealth of opportunities for singing and playing. A Kodaly-based approach introduced recently into the Pre-Prep classes aims to lay firm musical foundations and build upon this as our pupils progress through the key-stages. A strong emphasis on making music pervades the curriculum. Pupils from all years have regualr opportunities for performance in school events and concerts.

Fairfield pupils have the opportunity to join an orchestra or wind band, play in one of the numerous smaller instrumental ensembles or to sing in one of our four choirs. Many of our pupils have been awarded music scholarships at such schools as Loughborough Grammar, Loughborough High, Leicester Grammar, Oakham and Oundle as well as gaining places in youth orchestras and bands at national level.

The Burton Choristers was established in 2010 to provide opportunity for those boys with unchanged voices in Years 5 and 6 at Fairfield, and Years 6 to 9 at Loughborough Grammar School, who demonstrate good musical potential as well as strong singing voice.

Chesterton Cantamus was established in 2012 to provide opportunity for those girls in Years 5 and 6 at Fairfield, and Years 7 to 9 at Loughborough High School, who demonstrate good musical potential as well as strong singing voice.  Cantamus perform regularly in concerts and services, and have already been on their first tour, singing services in Ely Cathedral in July 2013. The choristers have sung at a Leicester Tigers game, for Loros at Leicester Cathedral and for BBC Radio Leicester. They also toured the Netherlands and appeared on 2011’s Children In Need broadcast.

The LES Music School website at www.lesmusic.org contains useful information about music provision at Loughborough Endowed Schools, as well as details of all forthcoming events. If you would like any further information about music at Fairfield, please make an appointment to see our Head of Junior Music, Mrs Angela McGee.
