Musical Chairs!

We would like to thank Mr Kwan for his huge contribution and hard work at Heritage during Mrs Zurcher’s maternity leave, It was a particular highlight to have Mr Kwan join us for Senior Camp last year – a real baptism of fire and of course we are so grateful for all he has done in the department throughout the year and especially for the Christmas Carol Service and Nativity. It was a real sadness that we had to cancel the Spring Recital so we were unable to hear the choirs and class instrumental groups.

Mr Kwan has said
‘I had the best time at Heritage and I will miss everyone. So much has happened in just 12 months from cooking at camp to the card game club in the summer with the now year 11’s. I also really enjoyed setting up the close harmony choir and playing for the year 5 musical. Its been a really lovely place to work and I’ve made so many friends. I would like to extend my thanks to everyone for making it such a wonderful year. I wish you all the best and hopefully I will see you all again in the not to distant future.’

Mr Kwan is setting up a piano studio and will also be teaching Organ, Theory, Composition, Bassoon and Recorder. He is offering Heritage pupils 3 free trial lessons (offer expires 01.06.20) For more information please go or email:

We wish him all the best for his next steps.

We would also like to welcome back from maternity leave Mrs Zurcher, pictured above with the beautiful Liana! Working part time she is currently teaching Year 7 and 8 (who are creating music online) and Year 9 and 10 who are doing their iGCSE course via Zoom.
When school re-opens she will be taking all Junior and Senior music lessons – with the exception of Year 9, 10 and 11’s class singing lessons which Mrs Lowe will be taking – providing an exciting addition to the Music department!

Mrs Zurcher is delighted to be back and has assured us that there will be plenty of singing and music making ahead including more of the very popular samba and drumming classes!
