Southampton Music Hub

Rap and literacy project


This year long Rap and Literacy project was initiated by Southampton Music Hub, funded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation. It was a collaboration between The Rap School, Southampton Music Hub and three Southampton Schools; Bassett Green Primary School, St Monica Junior School and Weston Park Primary School.

Through a process of co-construction, a year’s long programme of music and literacy was designed and delivered from September 2021 to July 2022, including workshops, CPD lessons, and performances. The programme worked with 270 pupils, nine class-based teachers and one music hub curriculum specialist. It also engaged an audience of over 200 parents and family members.

Lea Valley Academy, Enfield

Unforgettable! It was terrifying performing in front of the whole year group. Even though I messed up, I feel proud that I did it. I hope to be a rapper one day so it was great to meet
Rob and learn from him
