King Edward's School Home

An independent day school for boys aged 11 to 18


The Music School is a large, well equipped and energetic department with three permanent music teachers, 24 visiting specialists and a technician/administrator.

Music is taught to all boys in the first three years and the course is designed to be rewarding and enjoyable to boys of all musical abilities and previous experience. The curriculum is project based and boys are encouraged to sing, play acoustic instruments and use sophisticated music technology to develop their skills and appreciation of all kinds of music.

Many boys go on to study iGCSE music and our results have been excellent. On average, half a dozen boys study music in the sixth form. The IB course is an excellent vehicle to get academic accreditation for musical skills and it is a thorough preparation for boys who wish to study the subject at university or a conservatoire.
