Music teaching and performance takes place throughout the school week. From specialist music teaching in our Nursery to individual instrumental lessons, music is an integral part of school life. Participation in music ensembles is encouraged, with regular opportunities to rehearse and perform in the Sarah Abraham Recital Hall at the College.

We have 35 visiting music teachers who instruct the children in a range of instruments. Half of our pupils have individual music lessons, which compliment our music curriculum. They perform in ensembles, bands and choirs throughout the academic year.
Our musicians have many opportunities to perform at the school and external musical events.
