All students take music in Years 7 – 9, encompassing a single one-hour lesson in Years 7 and 9 and two one-hour lessons in Year 8. Music is an option for both GCSE and A-Level. There are two music rooms, in addition to a suite of 4 practice rooms, one of which is a large room for drums and steel pans. Room 34 is equipped with 12 music computers and is used for ICT work mainly in Years 9 and above.

Pupils who wish to have instrumental tuition can do so through the school. We can offer tuition in all instruments. If required, instruments can be hired from the school. Mr Cartwright, Head of Music, can be contacted for more details.
