Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, regrettably we are unable to invite parents into school for a tour of Berkswich CE primary and nursery. We understand that choosing the right setting for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your child’s learning journey. With this in mind, we hope to provide you with a range of opportunities to allow you to gain an insight into life as part of our special Berkswich community and the chance to ask questions. We certainly welcome the opportunity to support and reassure you as you organise your child’s first steps into Nursery and Reception. We are offering virtual meetings to provide an opportunity for new parents to meet our headteacher, EYFS leader and teaching staff. This will provide a great opportunity for you to ask questions and find out about our community and learning at Berkswich CE. Your child is a vital part of this process, and so we welcome them to join in with the meeting.

Our Guitar Players

Advice from Our School Musicians


We are very proud of our guitar players and know that their experiences will help others to stick at it and get the most out of their rewarding musical journey...




Which instrument do you play and when did you start?

I started learning the guitar at Christmas in 2018. 


What do you like about playing an instrument? Why did you choose the guitar?

I like music and I like making a tune - there isn’t really a reason. I like guitar because I heard my best friend play it and I liked the sound it made. I like learning new tunes and when my teacher says I’ve done a good job.


Did you ever feel like giving up? What stopped you?

It is hard to practise when you don’t know what to do.


What advice do you have for someone starting to learn a new instrument?

It takes a long time. Practise makes perfect.
