Orchestras, Bands & Ensembles

The provision of opportunities for boys and girls to play in an ensemble is far reaching.
There are some 13 instrumental groups that meet regularly and several other smaller groups that would come together for special events. These groups are run by the relevant instrumental teacher and would usually include all of the pupils learning an instrument. Currently about 50% of the school participate in an instrumental ensemble. Those pupils learning outside of school are also most welcome to participate. Membership of some of the groups is tailored to certain ages or ability levels:

  • Junior Wind Sinfonia
  • Senior Wind Sinfonia
  • Senior Chamber Wind
  • Junior Percussion
  • Intermediate Percussion
  • Senior Percussion
  • Guitar Ensemble
  • Brass Ensemble
  • Cello Ensemble
  • Senior String Quartet
