Music is a busy department offering a variety of co-curricular activities and enriching experiences in academic lessons. We firmly believe all our lessons should be inclusive and the breadth of curriculum allows students to experience musical genres such as gamelan, African music, rap, pop music and a variety of Western classical music.
There is a wide range of co-curricular clubs from Vocalise to Samba Band. This allows students to explore different instruments and styles. All students in Year 7 learn a musical instrument in small groups as part of our ‘Taster Scheme’ giving them the opportunity to develop a new musical experience which they can continue throughout their time at school. Music is a popular subject at GCSE level and we also offer A-level Music in Sixth Form. In recent years, students have opted to continue studying Music at Oxford University, King's, Bristol and Bath Spa.
The department offers bi-annual foreign tours and completed a successful tour to Prague in 2019 and a trip to Venice and Verona in April 2017. We perform our annual Christmas Carol Concert at the Chapel, Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich alongside many other concerts held both in school and in the community. Recent performances include: Scholars Concert; Pop Fest; Tea Time Concerts; Percussion Concert; Grease at Greenwich Theatre and our prestigious House Music Festival.
