Fulham Estate Agents proudly sponsor local music open day

Music School in Fulham

Music School in Fulham

On 18th May 2013 from 10am to 3pm Lady Margaret School in Parsons Green will play host to the Music’all Open Day, which will be sponsored by Fulham Estate Agents  James Pendleton.

Established in 2008, Music’all is a charity run extra-curricular music school.  The dedicated team of tutors and musicians provide a fantastic opportunity for local children to develop their skill and awareness of music in a vibrant and welcoming environment.  Lady Margaret School, one of the schools highlighted as outstanding on James Pendleton Estate Agents’ Fulham local area guide, has hosted the school’s Saturday classes since 2011.

Music’all offers classes for both musical beginners and those with advanced levels of skill, and develops young people’s musical ability and awareness via a range of teaching techniques from one-on-one tuition to full orchestral rehearsals.  One of the most exciting aspects of the programme is that children progressing beyond foundation level are given the chance to test a range of instruments before choosing their own specialism. Besides improving musical proficiency, a Music’all child will have a great opportunity to make friends and develop social skills.

The Music’all open day is a chance to introduce your family (and yourself-the school also runs an adult choir) to the team and discuss the music education options best for you.  The school is a great way to introduce children and families to music, and is home to a thriving community.  Look out for advertisements for the event James Pendleton Estate Agents’ Fulham and Parsons Green billboards, and if you’d like to find out more about the event or the school don’t hesitate to contact us at socialmedia@jphomes.co.uk

South West London, home of excellent schools

South West London Super Schools!

Great news for South West London residents as Hurlingham School on Putney Bridge Road was rated as Outstanding by Ofsted.  According to the Wandsworth Guardian the school received a brilliant report during their last inspection.

Every single category of Hurlingham’s Ofsted inspection report was graded at either outstanding or excellent; a rare and impressive feat.  The school has made significant improvements in the last ten years which the report has recognised.  This undoubtedly comes as excellent news for not only the school and its current pupils but also for South West London residents, particularly those with plans to start a family.

Clapham, Balham, Wandsworth and Battersea are areas well known for their wealth of quality schooling options.  Allfarthing Primary School, Hollywell Juniors and Infants, John Burns Primary School and Clapham Manor Primary School are just a few of the many schools in South West London currently graded as Outstanding.  Moreover, the area plays host to a variety of specialist schools such as Wix School, a bilingual French and English primary, and the Dominie School for dyslexic and dyspraxic children.  With the amount of choice on offer, it’s little wonder that the region is known as Nappy Valley!

Good luck and happy searching!
