Students at The Purcell School are characteristically motivated both musically and academically, and exam results are consistently strong, with excellence in a number of key subjects, including Music, English and Art.

Depending on a student’s age and instrumental commitments, approximately a third of curricular time at The Purcell School is spent on musical activities. For this reason students may take fewer academic subjects than in other schools, and many will take Music exams one year early. For these reasons, numbers and grade distributions may fluctuate from year to year. However, excellent teaching, dedicated facilities, and small class sizes help to ensure that our students attain good grades to continue in their studies.
