Curriculum Music lessons are taught in Years 7 and 8 and the subject becomes optional thereafter. One lesson per week is taught at Key Stage 3, three lessons at Key Stage 4 and six lessons at Key Stage 5. In the Sixth Form pupils may opt for Music and/or Music Technology A Level courses. We provide a wide range of musical instrument tuition to any student who wishes to learn an instrument at any standard. There are a variety of musical groups and ensembles, which include: Chapel Choir; Senior A Capella Choir; Guitar Ensemble; Chamber Ensemble; Big Band; Pop Choir; Percussion Ensemble and Discovery Band. Pupils are encouraged to organise their own smaller bands and may use the facilities to practise at their own leisure. The Music Department hosts a weekly concert series in-house, an annual large-scale musical production performed at the Epsom Playhouse, an annual Christmas Cabaret at The Bourne Hall and an annual choral and instrumental concert at St Mary's Church as well as several other impressive events through the year. Our bi-annual music tour has seen our Chapel Choir perform at Notre Dame Cathedral and Cologne Cathedral.
