What The Good Schools Guide says..
Yehudi Menuhin believed in the importance of a homely, family atmosphere in his school, and as we walked about, we saw children playing contentedly in the school’s leafy grounds, cheering on their friends in the lunchtime concert, and generally appearing happy and at ease. Students attested to the kindness of the staff. ‘The school’s been really patient with me,’ said one, philosophically. ‘When I first came, I wasn’t a well-behaved child. Anywhere else would have asked me to leave.’
What the school says...
Specialist Music School plus GCSE and A level subjects. Entry is strictly through instrumental audition.
