Shrewsbury School

Music

More detail about ALL of our academic faculties can be found in our Third Form Curriculum document, our Fourth Form Curriculum document (leading up to GCSE) and the the Sixth Form and Beyond.


Head of Faculty: Mr J.F. Moore

Almost half of Shrewsbury's pupils receive individual music lessons, often in more than one instrument.  A large number of groups give as many pupils as possible the opportunity to perform, from Junior Brass at a Musical Stage evening in the music school's own 200-seat auditorium, through to a full orchestral concert in Birmingham Town Hall or Cadogan Hall in London (a regular feature of Shrewsbury's music programme). 

A purpose-built music school, opened by the Prince of Wales in 1999, provides a small concert hall, 20 practice and teaching rooms, two classrooms, and an IT suite equipped with the latest hardware and software. 

Larger concerts are held in the School's main assembly hall, the Alington Hall, which seats 500.

Please see our Music section under 'Co-Curricular' for information about the range of choirs, bands and other activities that the Music Department offers.
