KS3 Pop Vocal Group                This group welcomes any enthusiastic singers in years 7, 8 and 9, who want to develop their confidence and skills through group singing of popular music. During rehearsals, students develop their understanding of chords and harmony, writing their own harmony parts and arrangements. This group is ideal for singers who are considering GCSE Music as we explore music theory in a practical way in rehearsals.

Girls’ vocal group welcomes all girls from years 7-11. This group explore a wide range of musical styles: popular, folk, jazz, classical, world. Girls learn both aurally and through notation. The girls vocal group will perform alone and also collaborate with the boys vocal group to form a mixed choir.

Chapel choir welcomes all singers from years 7-11. This group works on more challenging repertoire, with a particular focus on sacred works and songs of worship. This group is ideal for students wishing to learn how to read notation well and who are thinking about taking or currently taking GCSE Music. 

Instrumental Ensemble

This is an instrumental group open to all students who learn an instrument, either at school or with a private teacher at home. Instrumental ensemble will play pieces as part of a large group, but also be split into smaller ensemble groups according to performance level. Students will learn music in all sort of styles, including classical, jazz, music for stage and screen and popular music arrangements. A great opportunity, not to be missed!

Piano Ensemble

This is a new and exciting opportunity for students who play piano. Piano ensemble explores piano repertoire for four and six hands, meaning piano duets and trios. Piano ensemble provides piano students with much needed ensemble practice, improving sight-reading and timing skills. So often pianists spend time practising alone, but in this group you will make new friends and explore fresh skills that ensemble playing provides. More advanced students will also begin to learn accompanying skills. Piano ensemble have opportunities to perform throughout the year, including the annual piano concert
