Our new Music School

The music department were ecstatic with joy this morning as they began to settle in to Downside’s new Music School. 

Director of Music, Mr McNamara, was working in his new office and Mrs Rees-Jones was busy organising the week ahead for pupils and visiting teachers. Mr Tony Bevan had already found his new teaching space and was waiting for his first pupils of the day, having checked that everything was bright and ready. 

The new department is based between the Downside Theatre and the Old House. A series of very smart, sound-proofed practice rooms snake around the back of the stage, plus there is a Mac suite alongside the main teaching classrooms, with offices underneath Caverel House. The Theatre Foyer has also dramatically changed within this second phase of building work…you’ll have to come to West Side Story in March to see it for yourselves!
