The College has an excellent Music department with the very best of peripatetic assistance. Standards are high and those with exceptional talent are warmly encouraged to apply for a scholarship.

The Director of Music will audition candidates, sometimes in the company of a specialist in the main instrument being offered. They are asked to perform two contrasting pieces on their first instrument or voice. For those interested in Third Form entry, we would expect them to be ABRSM Grade 5 standard, whilst those for First Form entry would require them to be Grade 3 standard. They should also be prepared to perform one piece on their second instrument or voice (Grade 3 approximately) and to talk about their own music making and aspirations in the form of a viva voce. The Director of Music would be pleased to see examples of compositions which candidates have completed.
