Music is a core component of the school curriculum in Years 7 and 8 and optional in Years 9 upwards.

Music is a valued part of the taught curriculum during Years 7 and 8 and is a popular option at GCSE. The chief contribution of music to school life occurs outside the classroom, however, and a large proportion of boys learn an instrument at school.

Opportunities for performance abound for beginners and experts alike, whether as individuals or members of one of the growing number of ensembles and bands that flourish within the school.
