Senior Music

Music is a great way for young people to communicate.

Our aim is: 

  • To enable all of our students to understand and enjoy music in all its many forms.
  • To provide the aesthetic and creative challenge for a vibrant and balanced curriculum.
  • To have fun and become more confident young people.

We encourage a music for all policy and strive to provide as many different and varied musical experiences as we can whether that be in the classroom or through visits to concerts or other extra curricular music making activities.



Trinity offers a wide range of facilities centred around the music centre. We have a large teaching and rehearsal room as well as three practice rooms/instrumental teaching rooms.  ICT provision includes 10 PCs each running Sibelius 6 software and three Macbooks running Pro Tools for A level Music Technology classes.  In the main classroom there are a selection of Yamaha keyboards, a Broadwood grand piano, a drum kit and a full 12 piece samba band.
