The school’s Juilliard programme has been created in close partnership with the private conservatory the Juilliard School (New York) to give students with a passion for music the opportunity to develop their talent with top professionals.
Students are supported by dedicated teachers and career counsellors who encourage and inspire them to pursue all their goals.

In recent years, students have travelled to exciting countries such as Japan and taken part in humanitarian trips to Madagascar and Thailand.
