About Us

A Little Bit of History...

The society was reformed in 1972 by Peter Dart, at which time it consisted only of the Choir and the Orchestra, then led by a young Simon Rattle. The society has grown substantially since, with the formation of the Wind Band by Tom Sears in 2011 and the Jazz Band by a group of students in 2012. The Wind Band was recently renamed to the Concert Band in 2016. Our patron is Sir Nicholas Jackson.
