Music plays a central role in the life of the school, and all our pupils are encouraged to discover and further their musical ability.

Every pupil in the first and second form is given an instrument and tuition in small groups is provided to enable every pupil to reach a standard where they can access the GCSE course should they wish to do so. This culminates in a massed orchestral performance at the end of each year in which every pupil in both year groups performs.

The scheme is supported by our team of 14 visiting instrumental specialists and takes place in addition to classroom music where we provide tuition in performance, listening and composition.

All our pupils are encouraged to participate in our many co-curricular activities which include several choirs, as well as large and small instrumental ensembles which perform on a regular basis.
