Music at Woodbridge School is nationally regarded as exceptional. Many pupils regularly train and perform with some of the UK’s most prestigious youth orchestras and choirs. Yet music is not an elite activity at Woodbridge – the emphasis is on enjoyment and involvement for all.

The ethos of Woodbridge’s music department is based around the classical repertoire, but there are many opportunities for pupil to play other styles of music such as rock, jazz and swing. The Britten-Pears Music School is a hub of activity throughout the week and features recital, rehearsal and teaching/practice rooms; elsewhere there is a fully digital IT suite for composition. Through all of the musical activity within the music school, the School performs a pupil-led programme of concerts every year.

The Opportunity to Play

There is a wealth of music groups to choose from, catering for all abilities and ages, from the enthusiastic Year 7 beginner through to the Year 13 top grade students.
