Music

The School offers a varied and exciting extra-curricular Music programme led by highly experienced musicians and teachers that continually strive to create and maintain a balance between excellence and inclusivity.

Whilst the most able pupils are stretched with challenging repertoire and leading ensembles, pupils that wish to perform with others and gain invaluable ensemble performance experience are also catered for in a variety of ways. There is a busy rehearsal schedule each week with major concerts and performance opportunities each term that give the diversity of musical ensembles a platform to showcase their work. The Autumn Term also features a traditional Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols that gives the top choirs the opportunity to lead the festive music. A recital series runs through the year which affords individual pupils the opportunity to perform solo. Various other large-scale events also take place through the school year, including a Year 6 musical, a Year 7 concert and a whole school musical.

Pupils also have the opportunity to study Music at both GCSE and A-Level.
