At BSY we believe that music is a universal language that can engage and inspire pupils, and therefore has a central place in our curriculum. Throughout the year, an exciting schedule of concerts and musical workshops provide pupils with the opportunities to showcase their work and talent, both in the school and in the wider community. BSY offers an extensive music programme that allows students the opportunity to perform in ensembles and sing in choirs. For those interested in developing their musical education further, we offer individual music lessons for a range of instruments.

Music sits within the Creative Arts Faculty who work exceptionally well together as a small, talented and dedicated team. The team are responsible for producing a series of high quality events – in January an exceptional production of Little Shop of Horrors for example. Mostly recently, the team worked together to host a whole school Art Exhibition displaying not only artwork, but also student ensembles and student compositions.
