The music industry is worth £4.4bn to the UK economy and currently has over 142,200 people in full-time employment, 67,000 of whom are musicians. We offer Music Technology and Music Performance diplomas, Music A Level, as well as a HND in Music Production.
We are one of the largest A Level departments of its kind in England and many of our A Level leavers (about 40%) continue to study music or music-related courses. We currently have alumni studying music at the UKs most prestigious Conservatoires (RNCM, BC, RWCMD), Universities (Cambridge, Oxford, Durham), and popular music ‘Institutes’ (BiMMs, ICMP). Many staff continue to be active in the music industry as remix artists, sound editors and producers. Specialist facilities at London Road include three dedicated recording studios and a specialist production suite. The courses are enhanced by regular guest lectures and trips.
Level 3 Extended Diploma in Music Technology
Previous school: Oldbury Wells School
I really enjoy music and wanted to go to a college where I could focus solely on that. I have learnt a lot at the College, the teaching is great and lessons are informative. I enjoy the live performances we do and the studios we use are professional and realistic. After College I am going to study a HND Music Performance course.
A Level Music (Business, Economics, Psychology)
Previous school: Church Stretton School
I will study Music at Durham University and then do a PGCE as I would like to become a college Music teacher. This has been inspired by the great teachers at SCG and all the hard work they have put in to help me. I learnt composition and theory and truly developed my skills as a Musician. I play classical guitar and never thought I’d be able to consider it as a future career. I also take part in the MaDA performances and am a member of the college choir - these are great confidence builders.
A Level Music (History and Geography)
Previous Institution: Priory School
I am thankful for the excellent music teaching I have received, both at the College and from my instrumental teachers. I am going to study Music at Cambridge University and am excited to continue expanding my musical knowledge. I feel very privileged to be going to such a prestigious university!
