Students at Chengelo are able to pursue music as an academic subject to IGCSE and A-Level but music is also very much a part of life for everyone at the school through its use in regular lessons, assemblies and church functions.
Studying music fosters a sense of creativity and appreciation of different cultures across the world while learning skills that are very rare. Teachers encourage critical analysis on one hand but also the ability to recognise the subtlety of emotion in a piece on the other.
Music classes also often explore the relationship between music and literature providing important performance experience that encourages children to get outside their comfort zones and increases their confidence.
As well as multiple shows and performances throughout the year Chengelo hosts a major Musical Showcase Concert each year.
