The investment in our Music Department continues to be central to the School Development Plan. A new Prep Music Centre opens in January 2022, following the success of the Years 3 & 4 Music Scheme. In 2020, the School built a large outdoor auditorium, part of a recent £3.5m investment in the performing arts. The Prep Divisions have recently expanded to 3-form entry and we have record Sixth Form numbers. New Hall musicians have gone on to study Music at Oxbridge and performance at conservatoires.
