Students at all levels are encouraged to develop individual and ensemble performing skills, to deepen their listening and analytical skills and to create and compose with confidence and courage. Within the classroom, units of work are planned in line with National Curriculum, Edexcel GCSE and A level specifications; they ensure continuity, progression and skill development at every level. The musical development of our students is supported beyond the classroom by a comprehensive extra-curricular programme, opportunities for individual instrumental and vocal lessons, and an exciting variety of performance opportunities including annual concerts and recitals, competitions and musical/dramatic productions.
It is our abiding aim to encourage students of all ages and abilities to broaden their musical horizons, explore their potential, discover their talents and challenge their individual capabilities within a supportive, stimulating and inclusive environment.
