Music

The Music Department aim to create a musical and supportive environment to facilitate enjoyment and achievement from every pupil. 

Practical music making is at the heart of everything the department does with a wide variety of clubs and activities run in addition to the opportunities provided within the classroom environment.  Results are strong at both GCSE and A-level with a high percentage of students going on to study Music at university.  The department is housed in its own separate block with two teaching rooms and 9 practice rooms all equipped with pianos.  One classroom is also equipped with computers running Sibelius and Cubase music software and there is a range of other instruments and percussion available for use including a steel pan set.  Formal concerts take place in the school hall where our 119-year old recently renovated Steinway Grand piano is housed.
