The ethos of the Music Department is very much about active learning and enjoyment.

Practical music-making holds a unique place in the cultural heart of the school and excellence in performance comes from both the motivation and commitment of the Music staff, and the skills and abilities of the students themselves.

We are committed to nurturing new and developing musicians.  There are many opportunities for students to participate in a wide variety of activities in curriculum time and through extra-curricular work.  We actively encourage all to engage with the extensive and successful extra-curricular programme on offer suited to all levels and all styles of music making; the range of music covered is extensive and gives extraordinary scope for raising students’ awareness and appreciation of music from around the world, past and present.
