Musical excellence recognised at Westonbirt School

Westonbirt School is delighted to have been shortlisted for the prestigious 2011 Education Business Awards School Music Award. The awards, now in their sixth year and sponsored by Eteach, celebrate educational establishments that demonstrate a commitment to improving the quality of musical learning through the provision of a first class teaching environment.


Westonbirt, along with the two other shortlisted schools, will attend an Awards Ceremony on November 10th, being held at Arsenals Emirates Stadium, London and presented by BBC newsreader Moira Stuart. Speaking of the recognition, Director of Music at Westonbirt, Dr Charlotte Exon says: We are absolutely thrilled to be shortlisted for the School Music Award! It recognises the 15 strong music team we have at Westonbirt, who consistently go the extra musical mile to provide a first class learning environment. Music really is at the heart of Westonbirt School and being nominated for such an award identifies just that.


Music is thriving at Westonbirt School. Earlier this year, the schools Senior Choir won School Choir of the Year at Bournemouth's Music Festival 2011. This summer, for the third year running, all the girls achieved A*s and As in their GCSE Music examinations. The annual school production, directed by Dr. Exon in conjunction with the Head of Drama, brings the school to life with the majority of girls participating. Last years musical Joseph and the amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat sold out on two consecutive evenings and was a resounding success (so much so that Headmistress, Mary Henderson, challenged the audience to find a better production of Joseph on the West End or on Broadway!)


We wish Dr Exon and the Music Department the very best of luck at the awards ceremony!
