Music Teacher Awards Success!

Woodcroft Awarded ‘Best Music Department’music-teacher-awards-for-excellence

At a gala ceremony held on 12th March at The Grange St. Paul’s Hotel, Woodcroft won the award for ‘Best School Music Department’ 2015!

Mr Tallon (Headteacher) and Miss Sherring (Music Leader) collected the award on behalf of the school. They were joined at the prize giving dinner by fellow teachers; Miss Blythe, Mr Huckerby and Assistant Head Mrs Valoti. Also on the Woodcroft table was Lynn Holman-Fox, CEO of BEAT, Barnet’s Music Hub. The director of one of our sponsors, TutorHunt, and members of his family were also with us to share our success.

To be recognised by this award, as one of the best schools for music in the country, is an absolutely fantastic achievement. It is a credit to Ms Sherring and the whole music team, but most of all the pupils! Their dedication and enthusiasm to learn make it all worthwhile.

We had a fantastic night at the Music Awards, hosted by Music Teacher Magazine. Take a look at the photos below (click to enlarge). For more details about the awards visit the Music Awards website by clicking here.

Woodcroft would like to thank the Barnet Education Arts Trust (BEAT) and their instrument teachers for the support and opportunities they provide. We also owe gratitude to our sponsors Coreco and Tutorhunt for their on-going assistance, enabling us to provide inclusive music at Woodcroft.
