Music is at the heart of school life at QEH and plays a key role both socially and academically. Our aim is to offer everyone the opportunity to get involved in the many varied musical activities we provide.

There are a large number of musical ensembles in which pupils can participate, most of which rehearse regularly during the school week. We also run a Music Tech Club and regular recording workshops which allow those more interested in composing and recording, the opportunity to develop these skills.

The music diary is jam packed with concerts and performances throughout the year, ranging from the school choir singing in Bristol Cathedral for the Carol Service and Charter Day, right through to the hugely popular ‘Unplugged’ concerts that play host to the variety of bands created by the boys themselves. Recent Music tours have included trips to Rome, Prague and The Netherlands.

Instrumental lessons are available on a range of both classical and more contemporary instruments. Lessons are available to any standard, from absolute beginners through to Grade 8 and beyond. We encourage new pupils to take up an instrument when they arrive at QEH and offer Taster lessons as well as tuition at half fees for a term.

We also offer Music Scholarships at 11+ and Sixth Form levels. Please contact our Admissions team for  more information.
