The Music Department at Bede’s offers opportunities for performance and study to the whole school community.

There are concerts and recitals throughout the year, as well as showcase events such as the hugely popular Cabaret in the late Autumn, orchestral and jazz band concerts, the fantastic Bede’s Music Competition which involves every pupil and member of staff, and enormously successful collaborations with the Drama and Dance Departments.

At Bede’s, GCSE Music (OCR) is offered in Years 10 and 11, which can lead to Pre-U and BTEC programmes in the Sixth Form. Pupils are taught by a range of expert teachers, as well as music professionals who are working at the top of their field. We offer the chance to develop students’ musical interests and techniques across a range of styles, including classical, jazz, contemporary and pop, with many openings for performing both in school and in the community. 

Recent highlights of the Music calendar have included trips to Belgium and Venice.
