Academic


The School is divided into four flexible groups based not purely on age but also on ability.

This group system enables the school to form viable class sizes and provides a stimulating academic environment. The curriculum is designed to be balanced and to do full justice to both the musical and the general education of each pupil. All classes are small with excellent opportunities for individual attention. Key Stage Two, Key Stage Three, GCSE, AS and A Level courses are taught in core subjects within the National Curriculum by a well-qualified and dedicated team of staff.

We take a great pride in our academic record. In 2016, 64% of the grades achieved at A level were A*or A, with 86% being at grade A*, A or B; at GCSE 75% were at grade A*or A, with 94% being grade A*or A or B. These outstanding results demonstrate our commitment to challenging in equal measure both the musical and intellectual talents of the gifted musicians we are privileged to teach.
