Music At Bootham

Music is a vibrant and much-admired part of the school’s community. Everyone at Bootham – pupils, staff and parents alike – has the opportunity to experience music as a creative, intellectual, spiritual, social and physical force. There is a wide variety of performing opportunities throughout the year, ranging in scale from the House Music Competition to the Thursday Recital Series. As part of the Joint Quaker Schools’ Concerts, performances have included Haydn’s Creation in York Minster and Mendelssohn’s Elijah in Wells Cathedral. Several of our current students have gained diplomas, and perform in national ensembles.

In addition to the Director of Music, there are two part time teaching staff, and 18 peripatetic staff who, between them, provide over 25 activities/ensembles and approximately 300 music lessons each week. Many students have gained places at Oxbridge and specialist conservatoires. Bootham offers a generous Music Scholarship programme. As an academic subject, Music is offered at GCSE (Edexcel) and A’ Level (Eduqas).

The department encourages a positive and encouraging approach to all aspects of teaching and learning, prioritising self-confidence, a sense of discipline and personal responsibility, a recognition of achievement, and excellent relationships with staff and peers. Questioning is actively encouraged, as is the individual’s ability to think for themselves.

The music department is housed in the purpose-built Performing Arts’ Centre, which includes an auditorium, main classroom, eight teaching studios, two offices, a staff room, a library, and a well-resourced reference library.
