Music is a vital part of the school curriculum. Through practical based lessons students develop their creative, analytical and collaborative skills. All students get the opportunity to compose, learn an instrument and to explore a wide variety of music.
The academic curriculum is supported by an inclusive and diverse extracurricular programme with opportunities for students to create their own ensembles alongside taking part in one of the many choirs, orchestra, jazz and other instrumental ensembles run by the music team.
Studying music allows students to become dedicated, resilient, creative, analytical and collaborative individuals. These transferable skills makes the subject valued by many different professions and an excellent foundation for further study.
Creativity comes from the freedom to fail; the freedom to fail comes from the freedom to experiment. This is the basis of music at Waldegrave.
