Oriel High School Choir and Vocal Group
The Music Department at Oriel High School is a thriving and dynamic area of the school providing students with a high quality music education alongside an array of extra-curricular activities and performance opportunities. With a team of four dedicated music teachers, each an expert in their own specialist discipline, bespoke education can be provided for each individual student. We can also boast of a vibrant team of peripatetic staff who support all areas of the curriculum.
We have a proven history of high quality provision for GCSE, A-Level and BTEC music students including dedicated concert evenings, workshops and specialist sessions after school. In addition to this we also have a thriving music technology course at key stage 4 and key stage 5, which prepares students for life in the music industry. These students are always involved in the sound and lighting side of all concerts as well as being given ‘real life’ opportunities to develop their skills. As part of our philosophy, we regularly perform and work with our feeder schools.
So far this academic year both the choir and vocal group have been incredibly busy performing at our local feeder schools, our annual Christmas concert and in Horsham town centre to support local charities. Singing is an integral part of our curriculum at Oriel High School and we can also boast that we have a 6th form vocal ensemble who perform to a very high standard. Other extra-curricular groups include a senior ‘Soul Band’, Orchestra, Samba Band, percussion ensemble and a number of rock bands.
In recent years we have been able to give our students the opportunity to tour to Disney Land Paris and Belgium and we work hard to ensure that students are able to experience an array of professional music productions, work with and visit music professionals.
