Music Department

Welcome to the Music Department section of College website.  The College is very proud of its tradition in this important aspect of both curriculum, and extra-curricular provision for the boys.  All boys study music at Key Stage 3 with the opportunity to develop their study through GCSE and Advanced level study if desired.  The College has a rich blend of traditional and modern musical opportunities from the College Band to Battle of the Bands. 

The Music Department offers instrumental lessons to the students on a wide range of instruments including orchestral, keyboard, guitar, and percussion. These are delivered by our dedicated peripatetic teachers, whose expertise and encouragement have contributed to the development of a variety of instrumental groups.

There are currently groups for lower school woodwind, brass and string players, as well as a senior brass group and string orchestra, and also rock bands and a Samba band. These groups perform at a range of concerts, both formal and informal, including at the annual Battle of the Bands and Prize Day. There are also regular opportunities for individuals to perform including at the ‘Beginners Upwards’ concerts where students of all levels are encouraged to play.
