Pupils have excellent musical skills.

Music is rightly regarded as an essential part of the pupils’ general education and our excellent Music curriculum caters for all pupils.  

In the Pre-Prep, music forms an integral part of the curriculum from the Nursery through to Year 2. Music gives all children the opportunity to enjoy, create and explore. We aim to make music practical, fun, engaging and challenging - a subject where all children can find an aspect which they enjoy or excel in. There are many visiting music, dance and drama specialists who bring relevance and enjoyment to what the children themselves are learning and above all children are encouraged to enjoy music. 

In the Prep Department, all children are encouraged to sing through membership of one or more of the Junior, Senior or School choirs and these choirs take part in concerts and festivals inside and outside School. Children are also encouraged to learn an instrument (or two) of their choice and to help make the decision as to which instrument, a comprehensive instrumental scheme is run in Year 3.  Whilst on this scheme, the children receive tuition in many instruments and it is also designed to help discover musical talent at an early age. Music groups range from beginners’ ensembles for strings, wind and brass to the senior string ensemble, ‘Bash it’ (a percussion ensemble), senior woodwind ensemble, senior brass ensemble, as well as the chamber orchestra.

As well as music-making during assemblies, there are always many musical events each term, ranging from regular mini-informal concerts, formal concerts, a Piano-fest, a House Music competition, an annual Musical, as well as Carol Service.
