Music information sheet

Welcome to the Music Department.

We have many exciting clubs and activities to extend the opportunities outside of the curriculum so I hope you will find the information you require. The Music Department has strong links with DASP Music and also initiatives from the Dorset Music Service and, as well as current projects, you will find a gallery of photos from past events.

If you need further information please contact Caroline Pugh or Julie Coombs via the usual school channels.

Our school production – a play with music based around Dorchester during WW1

Students are currently researching for our play script and songs, which we are writing with the help of professional writers and local musicians.

If you have any family connections with local people who may have been in or around Dorchester during WW1, or any memorabilia or artefacts that can help us with our research, please contact Caroline Pugh
