I am delighted to inform you that girls in the Upper Transits and Shell who study GCSE music will be attending a GCSE music day at Headington School on Tuesday 6th February. This will include an open orchestra rehearsal with the ‘Instruments of Time and Truth’ orchestra, participation in a Baroque era and instruments workshop, a focus session on the GCSE set work ‘Music for a While’, participation in a Baroque choral workshop, and an informal concert at the end of the day.
The cost of participating in the event is expected to be no more than £20, which includes the cost of the ticket and transport. All charges for the event will be added to your school bill.
Pupils must wear school uniform to the event. Girls will need to bring a re-fillable water bottle with them, but Headington School will provide lunch.
We will be leaving to travel to Headington by minibus at 8.30am on the 6th, and should arrive back at Wychwood at approximately 4.30pm.
A risk assessment is being carried out by me, to be confirmed by the Head, of potential risk during the visit. A copy of the risk assessment can be supplied to parents/guardians on request.
If you wish your daughter to participate in the conference, please complete the permission form below by Monday 5th February. If you have any queries or further questions about the trip, please do not hesitate to contact me.
