Music is studied throughout the college from Years 8 to 14. At KS3 students develop their musical skills through a wide variety of activities incorporating listening, performing and composing. In Year 11 students may choose to study Music as a GCSE subject and following this they may continue their studies with a BTEC in Music Performance at KS5.
In addition, students may choose to learn a musical instrument. We have a number of peripatetic tutors who provide individual and small group tuition in voice, woodwind, brass, piano, guitar and drum-kit. Students are prepared for graded examinations through ABRSM, London College and Rockschool.
The Music Department puts great emphasis on extra-curricular activities and students are encouraged to take part in these. There are many opportunities to perform throughout the school year.
