Newham Grooves

The Newham Grooves project started in E13 and we are excited that it is expanding to hubs in E16, E6 and E7!

Each Groove hub invites new musicians in year 4, 5 and 6 from neighbouring schools to come together to play in ensembles including orchestras, singing and guitar/ukelele.

Current Groove hubs:

  • E13 Groove: Curwen, Portway, Plaistow, Selwyn and Upton Cross primary schools with Lister Community School.
  • E16 Groove: Hallsville, Keir Hardie, and Scott Wilkie primary schools.
  • Central Groove: Kensington Primary School
  • E7 Groove: Sandringham Primary School
  • Beckton Groove: Kingsford Community School and Gallions Primary
  • East Ham Groove: Nelson Primary School

If you are interested in joining a Newham Groove or becoming a host school, please contact us at or call us in the office on 020 3598 6260.

Join us for the first ever Newham Grooves Play Day on 4 July 2019 where we will bring students from all the grooves together for a day of playing and performing.
