Music A Level is an incredibly rigorous and demanding course that works well with a wide variety of other subjects, due to its interdisciplinary nature.
Our study of music comprises three disciplines:
We follow the Edexcel specification. Tuition is classroom based, combining a mixture of theoretical study and hands-on application and investigation through project work. Assessment is through both examination and coursework.
Extra-curricular opportunities include our own Sixth Form choir (compulsory for all students) as well as those targeted specifically at A Level and the set works that we study - for example, a trip to Oxford to hear evensong at Christ Church Cathedral and to the Royal Festival Hall to hear the London Symphony Orchestra.
For more information, including admission criteria, see the Sixth Form Options booklet.
