We also run additional sessions outside school time for those who are interested, particularly GCSE and BTec Music support groups for those taking either course at Key Stage 4.
The Music Department showcases our huge array of talent through two major concerts in school each year: The Summer Festival and Celebration Christmas Concert.
In school we offer the chance to get tuition on just about any instrument. We have freelance tutors teaching:
- Piano and keyboard

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a rewarding, enjoyable and challenging programme of personal development, which is looked upon favourably by employers and universities alike. The Award is for anyone aged between 14 and 24 and covers three levels – Bronze, Silver and Gold.

- Physical: improving in an area of sport, dance or physical fitness
- Skills: developing practical and social skills, and personal interests
- Expedition: planning, training for and completion of an adventurous journey
Each section must be done for a minimum amount of time and assessed by someone with knowledge of your particular activity.
