Subject overview

At Stonyhurst, a full range of academic and instrumental tuition is offered in our purpose built Music Basement. We have a growing concert calendar featuring concerts, performances range from solo recitals to large-scale ensemble concerts and chamber music concerts, to contemporary evenings, musicals and school plays at particular times of the year. The Music Department benefits from a high profile external performance calendar, participation in music competitions, regular services and concerts across the globe. In addition, the Music Department has over 23 instruments for pupils to learn and a number of sound proof pods, to ensure pupils are able to practice whenever they require, without affecting others.

Music in the curriculum is linked closely with co-curricular music, and all pupils who select Music as an option will certainly be expected to participate fully in the wider life of the Department. To get a wider impression of our department, please follow us on Twitter, where we are @stonyhurstmusic.

We have music scholarships available at 13+ and 16+; for more information, see the annual Directory of the Music Teachers’ Association, which is sent to all prep schools and junior conservatoires, or contact the Director of Music directly using the button below.
