We aim to empower our students to explore musicality in its many forms, whether through performance, composition, analysis, academia, theoretical or technological; To facilitate the sharing of experiences, knowledge and skills, so that out students can discover music and its many rewarding pursuits.

Students work is celebrated through regular and inclusive concerts and showcases, which provides a platform for our students to develop stagecraft, diligent and robust work ethics and to take ownership of the planning and production phases; supporting and creating opportunities for students to show leadership, creativity and task management. Students contribute to community projects that support cross curricular links these have included: International Links, Every Child Matters and Enterprise.

Art is a vehicle that conveys a multi-cultural world without barriers or prejudice, contributing to an unbiased learning experience.  The Art Department aims to provide an environment that encourages all students to express their ideas and insights of the world around them.   Central to this vision is the development of ‘creativity’ both as a means of expression and as a fundamental ingredient of innovation.
