Welcome toHilden OaksPreparatory School & Nursery

Hilden Oaks children perform at Music@Malling international festival of music

Years 4, 5 and 6 perform "The Frog Prince" at the West Malling International Festival of Music

Earlier this term, Year 5 spent a day and a half being taught their choreography by Danielle Jones of English National Ballet, and Years 4 and 6 spent a day composing and practising their original compostion "The Curse" from Sleeping Beauty with Adam Mackenzie from Chamber Domaine. They then had the wonderful opportunity of participating in the Music @ Malling International Festival of Music on 22nd September.

Our children listened to the world premier of "Grimm Tales" - a work by leading contemporary composer David Horne.

The concerts, in St. Mary's Church, are the culmination of a ground-breaking outreach project involving hundreds of children in local schools in creative activities led by English National Ballet and Chamber Domaine Orchestra.

The performances were magnificent, narrated by actor and musician Matthew Sharp. Beautiful colourful artwork from Years 4 and 5 depicting many of the fairytales were displayed around the church .
