Sharing our musical expertise

QE, which has Specialist Music College status, is to extend its programme allowing students from partner schools to learn an instrument at no cost. All the spaces for September were easily filled, so the decision was made to offer an additional 25 places – five to each partner school.

The extension to the programme follows a successful Partner Schools’ Concert in May. More than 200 pupils from St Andrew’s in Totteridge, Frith Manor in Woodside Park, Queen Elizabeth’s Girls’, Foulds and Christchurch took part, along with QE’s own Big Band, Wind Ensemble and String Quartet.
