The House Music competition held at the beginning of each year provides the opportunity for extensive student leadership. Each of the four houses has to produce an orchestra, a band, a boys choir and a girls choir. The Sixth Form leaders pick repertoire, arrange it, rehearse and direct each of the ensembles. It is a particularly valuable experience for A Level music students. With all of Year 7 and 12 participating, and more than half of the other year groups, it truly is a musical extravanganza!
