The Department

Upton Hall Music Department aims to develop creative, talented and confident young musicians, providing them with the means for self-expression.
We encourage our students to maintain a life-long engagement with the arts, providing them with opportunities in school to learn a musical instrument, take part in different ensembles and choirs, and to partake in various trips and cultural experiences outside of school.
We promote diversity and inclusion within the curriculum, covering a wide variety of musical genres and styles, familiarising all pupils with inspirational musicians and composers, and introducing them to music technology.
