Music is thriving at Exeter School and pupils have the opportunity to perform regularly in Exeter Cathedral and local churches, as well as in the Music School’s extended concert hall. There is a full programme of annual musical events including the Carol Service, Spring and National Trust concerts as well as the annual Choral Society, whose members include senior pupils, staff and families of pupils. The Music department went to Manhattan in 2017 for a Choral Tour (pictured) and is going to Liguria, Italy in 2019.
In 2018, Senior School pupils took on two of the greatest plays in Shakespeare’s folio – Julius Caesar and Henry V - with an all female and all male cast respectively. Anyone interested in taking part is welcome to tread the boards, play in the orchestra or help out behind the scenes with choreography, lighting, wardrobe and make up.
The Sixth Form prepare for life after school through an extensive ‘Futures Programme’ of support, enhancement and enrichment activities which focus on employability, careers and university through workshops, lectures and individual sessions ranging from team building to mindfulness to how to prepare a great CV.
