The Music Department comprises two full time Music staff. These are assisted by 14 visiting teachers who teach a range of orchestral instruments. In addition, saxophone, guitar, voice, piano and percussion are taught.
Each pupil has two lessons per cycle at Key Stage Three, after which the subject becomes optional at GCSE and A Level.
Many concerts take place each term, either at school or in venues such as local churches or the Royal Northern College of Music. Our choirs and orchestras have performed with other schools and we have commissioned our own music from a variety of composers.
Most alternate years, there is a Music Tour at the end of the Summer Term. Destinations have included the Rhine, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, China and the English cathedrals of Salisbury and Durham.
The music Department at AGGS is a vibrant place in which musicians of all ages and standards can flourish.
