We are proud to have been appointed as Head Boy and Head Girl in a school that we love. It is a privilege to study in this lively and collaborative atmosphere, to interact with the school community and to support our fellow students. Our aim is to make every day productive, enjoyable and unique. The incredible thing about The Purcell School is that we all share one common interest; music. There is a fantastic sense of family and an excellent rapport between students, regardless of age group. We all benefit from the unique balance of academic and musical studies and enjoy spending time with like-minded individuals.

No two days are the same; typically our days are structured around our academic lessons and individual musical programmes. We are fortunate to be taught by inspirational academic teachers and world-class musicians. Our instrumental lessons and various ensembles form the basis of a dedicated music block each day. Being in an environment where all students are committed and motivated to work on their music, we all inspire each other and strive to become the best possible musicians. The variety of performance opportunities, the provision of master classes, workshops and concerts is amazing. Boarders and day students alike are able to participate in many activities and social events outside of our lessons.

We have both been at Purcell for several years and cannot recommend it highly enough. Growing up and becoming well rounded musicians in this dynamic environment is wonderful. We are excited to be part of a school which is always striving to achieve the best for its current students and for those who will become Purcellians in the future.
