A PRIVATE school in Oxford will welcome pupils from neighbouring primaries for a string instrument workshop.

The Dragon School in North Oxford is again hosting its philharmonic orchestral workshops this year, as part of an ongoing partnership with state schools in the city.

It will welcome pupils for the string sessions on Tuesday, March 6, with classes all day culminating in a concert for parents at 3pm.

Last year more than 80 youngsters took part in the outreach programme.
