GCSE and A Level

Junior Trinity offers students the opportunity to follow a series of one year academic courses in music leading to GCSE and GCE qualifications. The courses are progressive and can lead through three years of study; however students can also begin a course at the AS Level of Advanced GCE Music, if they have appropriate qualifications and experience.

This thorough musical education involves the development of a range of academic disciplines, giving varied insights into performance, composition and the appreciation of music. Students also benefit from ongoing professional support and the opportunity to collaborate with their peers on the performance and composition modules of the examinations. The courses are an excellent foundation for any student who would like to widen their experience of the subject and are an ideal preparation for higher education courses in music.

Our results are exceptional

  • In the 2007 examination series, all GCSE students achieved A* or A grades.
  • Over 50% of A level students regularly achieve A grades in AS and A2 Music and Music Technology.
  • In 2005 and 2006 two of our A Level students were in the top ten in the UK.

The courses are intensive. Classes take place on Saturday mornings for two hours (GCSE Music) or three hours (AS and A Level Music and Music Technology). There is no charge for these courses for students over 16 years of age as Junior Trinity can access Learning Skills Council funds through a franchise partnership with Greenwich Community College.

What our students say

'Studying Music Technology A Level at Junior Trinity gave me and others the opportunity to learn Sequencing and Sound Recording in top class facilities with great support from our teacher. It certainly helped me get a place to study Sound Recording at Uni. We all thoroughly enjoyed the course, whether or not we carried on the subject at HE.'
