The Purcell School welcomes applications from all talented young musicians between the ages of 10 and 18.
We consider musical ability and promise to be more significant than grade attainment, and are looking for evidence of musical skill, desire, commitment and potential. However, students do require five or more GCSE or IGCSE passes at grade C or above, or the equivalent for overseas students, in order to enter the Sixth Form.
Open Morning: Sunday 6th October 2019 – 9am to 1pm

Twice a year The Purcell School opens its doors to prospective students and parents, welcoming them to meet staff and students, take in the campus and facilities, and enjoy the outstanding music-making that characterises the School.
Visitors are able to meet with the Principal, Director of Music and the Heads of the six Music Departments. They will be taken on a tour of the School, guided by current students, visit our recording studios and see the Music Technology Department in action. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions on all aspects of School life, academic and pastoral, as well as the music programme and entry auditions.
Please be aware that all places are means-tested, and that Scholarships of up to 100% are available under the government’s Music and Dance Scheme.
If you have any further questions, contact the School’s Registrar, Ms Karen Eldridge, on firstname.lastname@example.org.
