A team of fourteen peripatetic music and drama teachers come into school to provide individual tuition and music examinations (ABRSM) and English Speaking Board examinations take place on site in Year 3.

Since 2016, our Chamber Choir have performed annually with the English Touring Opera in Exeter Cathedral and visit Eton College biennially to take part in Evensong, along with a range of other performances and services elsewhere.
