"Music at Longlands is simply great!" 

           Julie Stanning, Assistant Principle of Bexley Music Education Hub


Welcome to Music @ Longlands! 


Here at Longlands, we are very proud of our rich musical history. As one of the very first schools in the borough to have a School Orchestra, we are currently celebrating our 42nd year of Orchestral Bliss! 


Working very closely with the Bexley Music Education Hub (Bird College), children at Longlands have the opportunity to begin learning an instrument from Year 3. The instruments we offer include: cello, violin, viola, trumpet, trombone, flute, oboe, clarinet, recorder and percussion. We are currently planning on increasing the number of instruments we offer, so do keep checking here for further updates! 


If your child is interested in learning to play an instrument and is currently studying at Longlands in Years 3 - 6, please download the form below and return to the school office, or email to  

Please note however, our specialist music teachers do get booked up very quickly at the beginning of the Autumn Term; in the event where we have too much interest in a particular instrument, your child will be added to the waiting list and you will be informed should a space become available. However whilst waiting, where possible, your child will be offered an alternative instrument within the same orchestral family.

£75 per annum (payable by three termly installments of £20) or pay a one off discounted annual payment of £70. 


Instrument Hire:
