The music extra-curricular program is extensive with a range of ensembles which rehearse weekly. These include:

  • Jazz Orchestra
  • Junior Jazz Collective
  • Brass Ensemble
  • Ukulele Ensemble
  • Samba Band
  • Small group vocal ensemble
  • Junior Boys Choir
  • Various Rock and Pop Bands arranged by the pupils

Students are given opportunities throughout the year to perform either as part of an ensemble or as a soloist.

The department hosts the annual Carol Service and Spring Concert in the local church. They are both very popular and a great success. In addition, we are regularly invited to perform at events in the local community and provide music for the Year 11 presentation evening and school sports day.
