Music

We have a strong musical tradition. Whatever their ability, all pupils are encouraged to express themselves musically, with Music being a core curriculum subject which includes singing, learning specific instruments, basic music theory and composition.

Professional performers frequently visit the school, taking specialist workshops and master classes across all musical genres. Choirs, orchestras, ensembles and bands abound in all parts of the school. Choirs frequently sing at local events for the enjoyment of the wider community and there is an extensive programme of music performance throughout the year.

A strong team of visiting peripatetic teachers compliments the specialist teaching within the Music department to provide instrumental lessons over a wide range of instruments and we are proud that so many children within the school learn an instrument.
