Music


Here at The Magna Carta School, we pride ourselves on the immense musical talent developed by our students.

Our students have performed all over the UK and many are making names for themselves in the public arena. Many students go on to study Music full time at institutions such as the Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) in Guildford and Brooklands College in Weybridge and we have built up strong links with these colleges over the years. There are too many stars in the making to name each individual, but here are a few that are already in the public eye to look out for:

  • Sophie Scott who is now studying for a Music Degree at ACM and is the lead singer and guitarist for Sophie and the Giants and has released two UK chart singles to date.
  • Shana Germain, who started at ACM in September 2016, and who has just released her first single called Friends and Business.

We have so many talented students in our current cohort that it is impossible to name them all, but there will definitely be many more future stars amongst our alumni.

We have strong links in school with Surrey Arts and have instrumental lessons taking place after school every day in a range of different instruments. If you are interested in instrumental lessons please contact Surrey Arts for more information: Tel: 01483 519303 Email: surreyarts@surreycc.gov.uk Postal Address: Surrey Arts, 14 The Pines, Broad Street, Guildford GU3 3BH.

We hold many concerts at The Magna Carta School. Every term, we do a Piano Concert which is a joint venture with Surrey Arts and enables both our students and those from feeder schools to perform. We also have major concerts at Christmas, Spring and in the Summer as well as our Help for Heroes Concert, Magna’s Got Talent and participating in external events like St Paul’s Church Christmas Tree Festival. We work closely with our feeder Primary Schools and run regular workshops for them.

Finally, our extra-curricular provision. We offer the following extra-curricular activities for our students:

Musical Theatre Club
