We have a wide range of musical activities on offer at Verulam to suit all from total beginners to experienced musicians.
We believe that music is a vital part of school life and that all students should be able to access this if they want to. Music is heard by students in assemblies throughout the school year performed by soloists or by some of our extra-curricular groups. We have a service of thanksgiving at the end of our first half term and music is integral to that. We have many concerts and events throughout the school year where musicians of all abilities get to perform in front of parents and show off what they have been working on. These events include our Nine Lessons and Carols, GCSE Recital Evening, Spring Concert and Summer Picnic Concert. Music also teams up with Drama to put on shows such as Addams Family, Oh What a Lovely War and Bugsy Malone to name a few.
