We are proud to be a Sing Up Gold and Platinum Award School, one of only 3 in Cumbria and over eighty in England. As a Platinum School, we work as singing ambassadors for Sing Up. Singing is at the heart of North Lakes in our classrooms, assemblies, in the playground and even on school trips! We work with other schools and our Choir has performed in London and produced its own CD and recorded songs for the National Sing Up website!
We try to offer as many children who wish, the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument. Over the last six years, during their time at North Lakes, every child has had the opportunity to play a woodwind instrument, through the First Access Programme. Additionally we offer tuition for a small weekly charge in instruments such as Guitar, Violin, Recorder, Singing and Songwriting (this may change depending upon demand).
North Lakes School also hosts Penrith Music Centre which is run by BlueJam Arts and supported by Cumbria Music Education Hub.
In 2013 North Lakes School was reaccredited with the prestigious Arts Mark Gold Award. The Arts Mark looks at many creative areas including Art, Drama, Dance and Music. North Lakes received the Gold Award due to the impressive strength, breadth and richness of provision for the Arts across the curriculum
