The music department allows pupils to inspire, create and thrive.  The lessons are all about creative music making with a wide variety of instruments and recording studio.

The department puts on at least 2 concerts a year where pupils audition to take part and there is a range of years and styles taking place. 

The department runs GCSE Music for key stage 4, encouraging pupils to perform and develop their knowledge of music and the music industry.  Pupils who take thiscourses go on to college, to study a variety of A-levels (Music, Tech etc.) and BTECs (Performing Arts etc.), with a number continuing into higher education degree courses.

The Music department works closely with the Drama department putting on the school show and our West End Theatre trip to London, where pupils in the past have been given the chance to see 2 musicals, experience a backstage tour of a theatre and look around the O2 British Music Experience.

The Music department also hosts a number of workshops from Gamelan Orchestras, African drumming to Taiko drumming.
