Since 2016 we have been developing a Singing Hub Schools model in Nottinghamshire.
The Hub model is an essential element of the Nottinghamshire Music Hub's vocal strategy at the Primary phase. We are committed to developing a singing strategy to ensure that every pupil sings regularly and that choirs and other vocal ensembles are available in the area.

Our vision is for a Singing Hub School in each of the 7 districts of Nottinghamshire. We hope to link schools together leading to joint choirs, musicals and other shared performances providing progressive singing opportunities for all within their locality.
We select schools with a proven track record of singing in school and that can provide the capacity to host events and support other schools. We look for schools with vocal groups which are popular with boys and girls, and that can demonstrate that singing is at the heart of school life.
What they do;
* Assist other primary schools in creating and implementing their own singing strategies
* Host an annual twilight CPD event for the primary schools in their district
* Facilitate one Year 6 to Year 7 transition project within a family of schools
* Provide mentoring support to the primary schools ion their area
