The Voyager Specialist Instrumental Music Programme harnesses international research proving that a specialist instrumental music programme builds the emotional, physical, social, emotional and cognitive growth in young people. The Voyager Specialist Instrumental Music Programme is tailored to our Year 7 students and stimulates their creativity, sense of identity, and capacity for self-expression and performance. Students chosen to  join the Programme will receive:

  • One free 30 minute Specialist Group Instrumental lesson each week.

  • Timetabled Specialist Extension Classroom Music lessons each week.

Applicants for this programme will be interviewed.  Applicants who do not currently play an instrument are welcome to apply. Applicants who currently play an instrument may wish to prepare a brief performance for the interview.

The Voyager Specialist Mathematics Programme inspires and challenges our brightest young students to become creative problems solvers. This programme is designed to optimise the opportunities for mathematically talented students to engage in rich and rigorous learning.
