Concerts and recitals are frequent and pupils have a vast number of opportunities to perform throughout their Senior years. Many pupils play at least one instrument, with several proficient in two or more, including voice, often to Grade 8. The array of instruments able to be learned is also impressive, with Peripatetic staff brought in, if required, to teach most pupil's choices.
At Clayesmore, pupils can pursue music to the highest level. Not only do they play and learn instruments, they also discover more about music history and theory to provide a well-rounded understanding of the subject.
Recent leavers are studying music at the Royal Academy, Royal Holloway and the Royal Northern College of Music amongst other top universities, colleges and conservatoires.
Our teaching staff are just as passionate about their subject as the pupils - prompting them to stretch boundaries, experiment, explore and strive to excel in their chosen field.
