We are very excited to announce that Sing Up has partnered with The School Musicals Company.
The School Musicals Company and Sing Up both believe in the transformative power of singing and teachers and children deserve excellent resources.
We want to make things approachable for non-specialists whilst at the same time supporting specialist singing, musicals and drama teachers.
By working in partnership with one another we can give schools a joined-up solution for all of their singing needs across the whole school year.
Tom Kirkham from The School Musicals Company states:
“We’re absolutely delighted to be entering into a partnership with Sing Up, we both believe in the power of singing whether that is in an assembly, as part of a choir, in the classroom, participating in a school musical or a school nativity.”
Michelle James, CEO of Sing Up explains:
“Sing Up’s always been committed to supporting teachers to lead singing right across the school day and through the school year. We feel that we’re even better equip to do that now in partnership with The School Musicals Company.”

1. Sing Up places singing at the heart of education by providing a complete singing package through a digital music platform, termly magazine and training. Sing Up’s extensive range of songs and resources are designed to help you use singing for cross-curricular learning in the classroom or to act as a complete foundation for musical learning across the school, with early years to age 18 and beyond. Sing Up enables you to fully reap the many fantastic benefits of singing.
2. Sing Up began as a government funded programme to reinstate singing in primary schools in 2007. It was a successful programme, reaching 98% of primary schools by 2012. Since 2012, when the funding stopped, we have sustained ourselves entirely through earned income from schools’ membership subscriptions and the continued loyalty and investment from schools is a sign of the value they place on singing and on the work of Sing Up. To our knowledge it is also the only previously fully-funded government initiative which has been able to keep going entirely from self-generated income.
3. Sing Up has always been a champion of the wider benefits of singing – for education, social and health outcomes – and marked our 10th birthday in 2017 by launching the Sing Up Foundation, a new charity with a commitment to a new charitable purpose around singing.
4. The School Musicals Company is a family business and feel passionately that all children should be given engaging resources that will help them to grow and learn, and have a huge amount of fun along the way. Their musicals and nativities spark the imagination and nurture a love of drama, singing and musical theatre that will last a lifetime.
