Music at Bournside

Music is an important part of the life of a Bournside student and there are so many ways to get involved. There is a music club for everyone at Bournside. If you enjoy singing then maybe the choir or production are for you, if you play an instrument perhaps the folk band, guitar group or orchestra are maybe more your thing, take a look at our latest music timetable to see the full range of opportunities on offer.

View the latest list of music clubs here.

If you would like to learn to play an instrument we offer instrumental and vocal tuition from an excellent team of visiting teachers. Please see our Instrumental Tuition information below.

Virtual Summer Concert 2021

"Welcome to our virtual summer concert, which celebrates and showcases the musical talent of our amazing students. The students have worked so hard over the past two terms, preparing for what we'd hoped would be a live concert. Unfortunately Covid restrictions have got in the way.

It's in place however, we are delighted to bring you a virtual concert filled to the brim with incredible work. You will hear performances from students in every year group, including the last opportunity to watch the year 11s and 13s who are leaving us this summer.
