The extra-curricular opportunities that we provide for our
students play a vital role in the success of both the students taking the
subjects and the wider college arts community. The Music team currently run a
concert every term; a Winter Concert, a Spring Concert and an open-air summer

wider Creative Arts departments to produce an annual production, which has
grown from strength to strength, demonstrating the highest calibre of
professionalism, talent and above all, student enjoyment.
