Loughborough Schools Music is a place where all pupils in the Foundation can be inspired and achieve of their very best. All four Foundation schools are served in our purpose-built, state-of-the-art facility from Pre-Prep to Sixth Form.
Our dual focus of excellence and inclusivity shine through in everything that we offer. We are extremely proud to be the only music department in the Midlands to have ‘All-Steinway School’ status, giving all our pupils access to the finest pianos available whether as a top-level pianist or a beginner in Reception. Our two top-of-the-range recording studios have put the study of Music Technology firmly on the map as an open access co-curricular or enrichment option, a GCSE and A Level option and also an option for individual music lessons all taught by our specialist staff. Our varied and diverse curriculum is underpinned by a huge variety of instrumental ensembles and choirs. There are opportunities for all our pupils to perform, both within the schools and further afield. Individual music lessons are a real strength here, with a large team of specialists supporting and encouraging those who wish to learn any instrument, to sing, or to perform via Music Technology.
I hope that this gives you a flavour of what makes the music department so exceptional. This is a place not only where individual achievements are recognised and nurtured, but where any pupil who wants to be involved will find a place for them, with a warm welcome. If you would like to find out more, please do explore our web pages, pop in and see us, or come to a concert or two!
