Teacher profile

My name is Lucy Hanford and I teach Year 1 and coordinate Music at West Hill. I have worked at West Hill for 3 years having previously taught in many schools in the UK and also in Milan. I have taught in both KS1 and KS2 and particularly enjoy teaching Year 1 children. A creative approach is important to my teaching and I value the importance of a broad curriculum including Art, Music and Drama.

Music at West Hill is engaging and inspiring. Children perform to a high standard using their voices and playing instruments. We are a member of Music Mark for 2019/20 because we ensure that pupils are able to access and engage with a high-quality music education.

Assemblies, drama performances and concerts provide the children opportunities to demonstrate their musical skills in school and at venues such as the Royal Festival Hall.  West Hill works with the support of Wandsworth Music Services across the school.  Year 1 and Year 5 participate in the Singing Project, Year 3 and Year 4 participate in instrumental lessons, learning the recorder and trumpet, with termly performances to their families.  Rock Steady Music School visit the school weekly to offer extra-curricular rock music lessons providing children the experience of playing music in a band.
