‘Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of all garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.’

Matthew 13 vs.31-32

Our curriculum, including Drumba, is underpinned by the ‘Parable of the Mustard Seed’ and summarised by our motto:

 Together may we give our children: Roots to grow and Wings to fly. 


At Eppleby Forcett and Middleton Tyas, we have bought into the Drumba® franchise. Drumba® is a high-energy workout session comprising a mix of popular music whilst learning the drums, burning calories and beating a custom made drum pad. Drumba® is a cross curricular class that delivers music and P.E in one lesson that demands concentration, coordination, stamina, and endurance. Based on circuit training routines, Drumba® leaves your cheeks aching just as much as all the other muscles in your body from all the fun, laughter and the sense of achievement it brings! 

We have a number of staff and children trained as Drumba® leaders and are delighted to be able to share the project with the community.
