Highlights of a musical journey

In two of our most recent Virtual Assemblies, Director of Music, Mrs Sargent, shared GCSE Compositions from our current Year 11 pupils. As part of the Music GCSE, girls are required to create two compositions – one from a given brief set by the exam board and a second which is the pupil’s own choice, hence a wide range of music is explored and composed.

Mrs Sargent selected one composition by each GCSE Music student and, over two Assemblies, the original recordings were played of their fantastic achievements.

Mrs Sargent explained: “So much time and effort went into creating these compositions throughout Year 11 – many moments of wonderful creativity and of course, on occasion, frustration! But the end results are truly fantastic, and it was a joy to hear the girls’ compositions performed live by our instrumental staff, visiting musicians and on occasions, the girls themselves.”

The girls have every reason to feel very proud of what they have managed to achieve.
