Music enables learning through the medium of sound and soul. Music allows students to experience great enjoyment through a remarkable combination of simultaneous ear, eye, brain and kinetic activity.
Music is at the heart of spiritual, moral, social and cultural learning. Students develop confidence, resilience and empathy through performing and creativity through sound (composing).

The Music Department is well equipped with two main teaching rooms, an Apple Mac computer suite and four practice rooms. We offer music instrumental lessons in school and tuition is available for Woodwind, Brass, Strings, Percussion, Guitar, Piano, Keyboard and Voice. Orchestral and Band instruments are available for hire.
Each year several of our students take Associated Board or Guildhall/Trinity music exams. We run several groups during lunchtime and after school, including School Band, Choir and Choral groups, and Wind ensembles. There is a Music Tech club that meets each week in the Apple Mac suite.
Our main musical events in the school year are the Christmas and Summer concerts, which involve both students and staff.
