The music department at Isleworth & Syon is a vibrant and dynamic area of the school which aims to encourage all students to participate in musical activities, through both the varied and challenging classwork, and through a vast array of extra-curricular activities.

We encourage as many students as possible to take part in performances to demonstrate ability across the whole spectrum. The programme comprises of performances rehearsed in class time and at extra-curricular clubs. We also encourage students to set up and rehearse their own ensembles.

Instrumental lessons are arranged in the school, using specialist peripatetic teachers provided by the Hounslow Music Service, ensuring that all students at Isleworth & Syon are given the opportunity to learn an instrument formally during their time at the school and pursue accredited music qualifications.
