"Personally delivering our lessons at Downham Primary School over the last 4 years has been a genuine privilege, due in great part to the welcoming and friendly nature of both the students and staff. Behaviour and attitude in lessons has always been superb and the support from the staff at the school has been among the best of any school we’ve ever worked with. Whether it’s accommodating performances or communicating with members of staff, Downham has always made our lessons feel valued and respected. Similarly, being able to deliver lessons in an environment wherein extra curricular activities are actively encouraged has such a positive influence on how much students can gain from their lessons with us. It’s brilliant to work with a school that cares as much about their student's musical education as we do! "
