MiSST Project

Music in Secondary Schools Trust - the Andrew Lloyd Webber Programme

As part of Holloway School's curriculum for the academic year 2016/7, the Year 7s who join us from September 2016, will be learning an instrument over the following three years (from Year 7 – 9). This is a fantastic opportunity and one which our school is very proud to be able to offer to our new Year 7 students.

We are embarking on an exciting new project with the Music in Secondary Schools Trust; the Andrew Lloyd Webber Programme. There are currently 8 MiSST schools in London - all offering bespoke music tuition to young people.

The mission of the Music in Secondary Schools Trust is to transform the lives of children and young people through music.

The Trust will do this by providing individual instruments and music lessons for a whole year groups of students thus enabling students to study,  play and perform in ensemble and orchestral groups.

As a result:

  • discipline and commitment to learning will improve
  • the skill of working in a team and a large group will be developed
  • academic attainment will increase

This will ultimately lead to lives being enriched.

The MiSST will promote the education of young people; as they enter Holloway School, the students will study a classical musical instrument for a minimum of 3 years as a part of their compulsory curriculum. The instrument and the tuition will be at no cost to the students or their families. All students on the programme will be expected to practice and perform in ensemble and orchestral groups on a regular basis.

If you require any further information about MiSST, please do not hesitate to contact: Mr Greg Davies, Head of Performing Arts.
