If you would like your son to be involved Musically at school, then now is the time to act!

We have some fantastic musical opportunities available for the boys.

Cost is dependant on the tutor, but for the likes of Woodwind and Brass instruments, there is only a hire charge for the instrument.

JAZZ BAND... The Jazz band will again be on Friday at Lunchtime. It is again lead by Ross Kane (one our itinerant tutors) and is also open for all boys at any level of tuition. Mainly for Brass or Woodwind instruments but not exclusively as we need a good rhythm section.
