Wellington School to pioneer ‘radical music offering’

The school’s fresh approach to music teaching will coincide with a new performing arts award

Wellington School is set to launch a new integrated music department this September, transforming its approach to music education.

Headmaster Henry Price said: “We are delighted to be revolutionising the way we provide music to our pupils across the whole school, which is unique in this area.”

Working across prep and senior schools, Wellington Music will offer “a nurturing music experience” from nursery to sixth form. The aim is to encourage pupils to enjoy performing more.

In addition to the existing music, drama and art scholarships, there will now also be a performing arts award, which incorporates dance into the offering – the perfect creative environment for the talented child – Andrew Trewhella, director of Wellington Music

The school has pledged each student will receive the “highest quality teaching, mentoring, instrumental and vocal coaching from the same outstanding team of music practitioners”.

Andrew Trewhella, director of Wellington Music, said: “Our pupils demonstrate significant creative talent and the broadest range of skills within the expressive arts, and the school is also widening the range of creative scholarships it offers.

“In addition to the existing music, drama and art scholarships, there will now also be a performing arts award, which incorporates dance into the offering – the perfect creative environment for the talented child.”
