Careers and Alumni

Almost all pupils go on to Higher Education, with by far the majority studying music and entering the music profession. Our dedicated Careers Teacher liaises with music colleges and universities and with academic and instrumental staff to identify the best prospects for each leaver.

Many former pupils have enjoyed success in prestigious national and international competitions and are now pursuing music careers all over the world, including guitarist Paul Galbraith, pianists Steven Osborne and Simon Smith, composers Helen Grime and David Horne, jazz pianist Alan Benzie, soprano Susan Hamilton, mezzo-soprano Monica Brett-Crowther, cellists Philip Higham and Duncan Strachan, violinist Daniel Roberts, and conductor Garry Walker. Comedian, actor and presenter Alexander Armstrong was a chorister at the school.
