Music is a key element of education at Ardingly College and we maintain a proud and flourishing tradition of musical excellence.

Our aim is to encourage and inspire pupils of all musical abilities. The music department is housed in a professionally equipped, purpose-built Music School, including a recital room and state of the art music technology studio.

Music lessons are part of the weekly timetable throughout the Prep School and hymns are practised weekly . Musical activities range from Jazz Bands to Fiddlers and include a range of choirs for different ages and a wonderful school orchestra. Termly informal concerts give pupils the opportunity to perform in public.

Our musicians in residence, VOCES8, regularly work with pupils during choral days and we hold Orchestral Days.  Ardingly College is also the venue for a series of professional concerts, Music@Ardingly
