The [Vivien Maxi] skirt has arrived and it is beautiful! Thank you Elisabete
Thank you so much for your help earlier today – and for the [Rebecca] dress. It is absolutely beautiful and my daughter loves it. Apparently it is too nice to just use for concerts, so it is going to become a “party dress” as well! I’m delighted to find something that fits so well and looks appropriate for concerts. Thank you once again. Sarah
Thank you so much for delivering the wonderful black skirt and sashes for Phoebe. She is absolutely thrilled and they are a perfect fit. I’m sure all her friends will want to know where we found such a wonderful skirt and we will point them towards your company! We look forward to making future orders! Penelope
I’ve received the Vivien Maxi Child skirt . To be honest with you I was really surprised at the wonderful quality of the material. It’s such a lovely skirt that I’ve recommended you to my daughter’s cello teacher who, in turn, will recommend to other parents . I can’t thank you enough. Tia
The dresses were a great success and the girls and parents were really happy with them. They made the performance look much more professional and cohesive. Lucy Elphinstone, Headmistress Francis Holland School, Sloane Square
It worked really well at its first outing at our recent concert and had many nice compliments. Rebecca Cavill, St Mary’s School, Calne
Your clothes are worth every penny, and are quite frankly the only clothes I’ve ever found that I’ve felt remotely comfortable in to perform. Pianist, Wales

Bacc For The Future – help save creativity in schools

Bacc For The Future

It is more than one year since the Department for Education launched a consultation on its plans for a new English Baccalaureate (EBacc). The planned EBacc excludes creative, artistic and technical subjects. It will make a minimum of seven GCSEs (and as many as nine) effectively compulsory for secondary school pupils in England; since the average number of GCSEs taken by pupils is 8.1, this will leave little, if any, room for such subjects.

The Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM) is calling on the Government to get its GCSE reforms right. It has started a cross-sector campaign, Bacc For The Future, calling for creative subjects, including music, to be valued equally to other subjects and to be included in the proposed EBacc.

Deborah Annetts, Chief Executive of the Incorporated Society of Musicians, said:

“The EBacc is not fit for children or the economy. It must include a sixth pillar of creative subjects. Without this our children will be denied a fully rounded education. These subjects also lie at the heart of our economy, and the Prime Minister has said that we need to make our economy competitive in a global market. Music alone contributes £5 billion per year to the UK economy, and, together, our creative industries contribute 6% of GDP.”
