Specialist music places at St. Cecilia’s Church of England School in Wandsworth will be allocated to children who demonstrate a particular aptitude for music and are therefore likely to benefit from a specialist course in music at the school.
Saint Cecilia’s Church of England School reserves 15 places each year for pupils applying for a place in Year 7 with an identified natural aptitude for music. Eight of these places will be allocated to children who qualify for a Foundation (faith) place, and seven will be allocated to children who qualify for an Open place.
How to apply:
- Complete the common application form online via the Wandsworth Council website.
- In addition, complete the supplementary form for a specialist music place which is available on the school website or at the back of the Wandsworth Choose a Secondary School brochure. Return this form to the school by 13th September 2019. The address is on the form.
- Preliminary auditions for pupils who are below grade 1 or beginners showing musical aptitude will take place at the school on Friday 20th September 2019.
- Final auditions for pupils who are grade 1 or above and for those successful in the first round auditions, will take place at the school on Friday 27th September 2019.
- Offers of Specialist Music Places will be made to the 15 highest scoring applicants, who will be notified of their success in the first week of March 2020.
Pupils admitted to Saint Cecilia’s Church of England School under the Specialist Music Place will be expected to make an active contribution to the school community through commitment to our extra-curricular rehearsal and performance programme.
Specialist Music Place holders will receive a free 30 minute music lesson weekly for one academic year in an instrument of their choice.
