Music is a key element of the Creativity and Performance strand of our Extended Curriculum.

The Music Department’s aim is to provide the opportunity for students to extend their own musical interests and skills. Music is a powerful, unique form of communication that can change the way students think, feel and act. It brings together intellect and feeling and enables personal expression, reflection and emotional development. Students perform and compose music in different styles increasing their understanding of musical devices, processes and contextual influences..

Students will have an opportunity to take part in ensembles which will include a Senior Choir, Orchestral groups and contemporary bands.  Pupils with a passion for learning an instrument will be able to have individual instrumental lessons provided by specialist visiting musical teachers.

Performance is a major aspect of our musical programme and there are multiple opportunities to play in Assemblies, Instrumental Concerts, Recitals, Major musical productions and at events in the school and wider community.

For pupils that desire a career related to music or wish to pursue it further, it can be offered as an IGCSE and A level subject.
