Welcome to the Horsforth School Music Department.

Here you'll find recordings of performances done in lessons, useful resources to help you with your work, rehearsal schedules, important updates, interesting links, witty banter and much more... 

The Music Department at Horsforth School is a dynamic and successful department. We deliver a rich, varied and inclusive curriculum supported by an extensive extra-curricular programme.

We have high expectations of behaviour and achievement to ensure that students at all levels of ability can develop in a safe, positive learning environment. The Department is committed to the delivery of high quality musical education. This has led to thriving group sizes at Key Stages 4 and 5, plus a varied extra-curricular programme that has high participation from all year groups.


We have two full time and one part time music teachers in the department and eight visiting peripatetic teachers who work with our students to achieve music grades in drums, brass, singing, strings, guitars, piano and woodwind instruments. 

If you have any further questions about our department please contact Ms Cairns at cairnsp01@horsforthschool.org
