Tockington enjoys a fine musical tradition and children have the opportunity to learn a variety of different instruments. The school features choirs, instrumental groups and an orchestra. Practical and theory examinations may be taken each term and there are various music days both in and away from school.

Visiting dance teachers provide tuition in Ballet, Tap and Limbering Jazz Dance and opportunities exist for entry to the Children’s Grade Examinations of the Royal Academy of Dancing.
Pupils are encouraged to participate at their own level and, where they demonstrate particular interest and talent, further specialist tuition is available. Boys and girls between the ages of three and ten take part in class dance/drama lessons. The aim is to use the body in a rhythmical and expressive way, using a variety of stimuli.

Drama has an integral role within the school curriculum, and throughout the year various productions take place from short pieces presented at morning assembly or in class through to full-scale musicals involving the entire school.
