Holyrood Academy's Music Department has an inspirational extra-curricular programme for our students to participate in. Mr Andrew Gilham, Mrs Karen Seib and Ms Jemima Farey are committed to providing opportunities for students to develop their musical abilities and to showcase their talents.

As well as the whole school choir, there is also a more specialised Chamber Choir, which together with the Swing Band and Orchestra, the students have entertained parents and the community locally, nationally and internationally on their music tours to destinations such as France, Ireland and The Netherlands.

In December 2014, the whole school choir WON the Grand Pier Carol Competition held at Weston-super-Mare. As part of their prize, the students joined other regional choirs to sing at Wells Cathedral Carol Service and for BBC Spotlight.

Instrumental tuition at Holyrood is provided by dedicated music teachers. Joint and individual lessons are currently available on brass, strings, woodwind, piano, drums and guitar.
