All pupils are encouraged to get involved in the many music ensembles that rehearse at lunchtimes.

These include:

  • Year 7 Choir
  • Senior Vocals
  • Orchestra
  • Wind Band
  • Chamber Choir
  • Brass Ensemble
  • Jazz Band.

The ensembles cater for players of all ability ranges and expertise. Musicians contribute to assemblies, concerts, celebratory events, Cathedral Evensong and joint performances with other schools. The Senior Vocals compete in the international Eisteddfod in Llangollen and Sainsbury's Choir of the Year Competition.

The Jazz Band and Chamber Choir compete in the British National Festival of Music for Youth each year. The department also tours abroad each year with the Choirs and Jazz Band. To date, they have toured Northern Spain, Paris, Venice and Tuscany, Prague and Germany. Last year they gave four concerts in Budapest.
