The course broadens pupils' musical horizons and sparks their creative interest in composition. Using Sibelius music software to notate their compositions, girls will have many opportunities to hear their work performed throughout the year, as well as in special sessions with visiting professional musicians.

Challenging and fun, the course is suitable for anyone who already has a keen interest in music. Pupils take part in regular concerts to develop their performing skills in both informal and formal settings and explore music across a huge range of genres including classical, jazz, pop and world.

Challenge & Extension: A variety of choirs, orchestras and instrumental groups ensures able musicians have the opportunity to perform at the highest levels. Bespoke guidance and tuition is given to students who show a considerable aptitude for composition.  

Visitors to St Gabriel's quickly recognise that this is no ordinary school. Parents are always impressed by the sense of purpose and enthusiasm of the talented, committed staff and the confidence of the extremely happy pupils. We offer girls the opportunity for a seamless journey from Nursery through to Sixth Form, with our boys leaving us at the age of 11 for their senior schools.
