Music is an inclusive subject in the Lower School, and the emphasis is on developing practical skills in a fun and friendly atmosphere. This is underpinned by a solid understanding of music theory. From Third Year, Music becomes an option subject and this is reflected in a more structured approach to listening, performing, composing, theory and the use of music technology.

We use Sibelius and Logic software for composition from the Third Year up to A Level, and we run the latest versions of these applications in our newly updated Mac Suite.
