Continued Professional Development

Continuing Professional Development is key to ensuring pupil receive high quality teaching. At LSMS we are proud of the CPD that we offer, knowing that it has supported many teachers and improved the music teaching for hundreds of pupils in Leicester and Leicestershire.

The feedback for the CPD last year was 99% outstanding and the impact of attending the training is visible when visiting schools and seeing and hearing children make music in their lessons.
