Music Scholarships

Music Scholarships are awarded to exceptional musicians in any instrument.

Music Scholars play an integral role in school productions, concerts and at local and national Music Scholars’ performances. Supported by brilliant teaching, our Scholars benefit from a portfolio of enriching activities including masterclasses with professional musicians, composition workshops, solo recitals and mentoring to develop musicianship, creative approach and technical ability.

Music Scholars are involved in the following annual Scholars’ events which are designed to stretch and challenge our most able musicians:

  • Scholars’ Composing Weekend – working with a professional composer to create a group performance which is then showcased at concerts throughout the year.
  • Performing Arts and Music Scholars’ Showcase – A chance for the scholars to perform solo items in a concert setting alongside a wonderful production from the Performing Arts Scholars.
  • Concert trips to London visits to top London concert venues with artists such as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and world-renowned solo artists.
  • Scholars’ Masterclass – a performance and ‘mini lesson’ with an established visiting performer to explore different approaches to performance and interpretation.

In January 2021, we opened our £4.5million Castle Performing Arts Centre. This state-of-the-art facility comprises a 500-seat theatre equipped with all the latest lighting and acoustic technology, large drama studio, along with multiple music classrooms and practice rooms. This fantastic new facility provides a unique performance space to motivate and inspire our young musicians.
