Music lessons are available for any interested students and the school holds a music concert every term. The annual Christmas musical is a highlight of the school year and is open to all members of the school community. The Sixth Form Cabaret is an opportunity for students to showcase their talents to a highly appreciative audience of fellow Sixth Formers!

Clubs and Societies

Community and Charity Work
