Music

"Provision for music is excellent ... Exceptional standards are attained by pupils in singing." Independent Schools Inspectorate Inspection Report 2013 

The school has a strong musical tradition and boasts several music scholars.

All pupils are introduced to an age-appropriate combination of traditional and modern music. Those boys found to have a talent for singing are invited to join the choir and those with particular talent go on to join schola. The choir recorded its first CD at London's Abbey Road Recording Studios in1999 and has gone on to record three more, the most recent of which featured all the boys in the school.

Instrumental tuition is available in piano, strings, woodwind, brass, guitar, drums and vocal. In the Upper school boys are invited to join the school's orchestra, which also meets weekly after school and gives major concerts each year.

Boys also have a number of opportunities to participate in musical productions while at Loyola. These include an annual Nativity involving all the boys of the Lower school, an annual Rudiments play and class productions throughout the year culminating in a drama festival at the end of the year. Productions have included The Mikado in the Upper school, Roald Dahl's Jack and the Beanstalk in the Lower school and The Three Little Pigs in Kindergarten.

Each school year ends with an inter-House art and music competition.
