An Inspiring Academic Programme
The School aims to achieve a balance between musical studies and an all-round general academic education. Music comprises a significant proportion of the timetabled time depending on age and needs. The remainder of time is spent studying a range of subjects including mathematics, English, sciences, modern languages and humanities.
The size of the school ensures that classes are generally small. This allows for a great deal of individual attention from an experienced and dedicated staff of teachers.
All pupils are set homework each day and time is allocated in the boarding houses each evening for this to be completed. Pupils’ academic progress is closely monitored and parents receive frequent progress reports.
