Mrs Eccleston, Music Department

As Dr Higgins mentions in his article on the Music Taster Day, Mrs Eccleston joins us for this term. We would like to welcome Mrs Eccleston to St Augustine’s Priory and here share some words she has written as introduction,

‘Hello, my name is Mrs Heather Eccleston and I’m the new part-time music teacher working with the Prep and Junior Department for this term. I have thoroughly enjoyed my first few weeks at St Augustine’s Priory and am impressed at how friendly, kind and musical the girls are.


When I’m not teaching I work as an accompanist and jazz pianist. My favourite pastime is throwing my walking boots into the boot of the car and heading up north to climb some serious hills with ‘Climb every mountain’ ringing in my ears!! (Yes, the ‘Sound of Music’ is my favourite film of all time!)’

This combination of the love of outdoor exercise and music is a sterling example to us all! I know that Mrs Eccleston will be happy here and wish her well in her work in the Juniors and Preps.
