Music is at the heart of our school.

As a school committed to changing the world for the better and creating 'tomorrow's citizens today' music is central to who we are and what we want to become!

Our holistic approach places great emphasis upon the arts and in particular musical education. We say it is 'the lifeblood' of our school and its influence affects both performers and those who listen and appreciate. Music is a 'golden thread' which weaves its way through our ethos and culture. For many of our students it is a life changer - playing music and their instrument becomes part of who they are and they take this with them wherever they go.
