Music at Sedgehill Academy
Music is in our soul at Sedgehill Academy...
“Sedgehill, a school with a welcoming and inclusive ethos. Where the teachers care for our future as much as we do, and encourage us to stretch and develop ourselves at any given chance. Vocalize is a clear of example this; It provides you with tremendous amounts of self-belief, before you know it you’re undertaking things you never thought you’d have had the confidence to do. Vocalize has really encouraged me to develop a true passion of mine, singing and songwriting; with the exceptional equipment in the studio and Mr Gilbert’s guidance, I’m able to do just that. We are all extremely proud of the fact that Lewisham Music have named a room after us, it’s fantastic to have that recognition.” Year 12 student
We are extremely proud of our rich and successful musical heritage, music plays a fundamental role in our commitment to supporting strong development of character and providing students with a rich and broad education.
Sedgehill Academy students have performed at the Barbican, London Palladium and at the Cadogan Hall. Our students have also performed with Il Divo, Michael Ball, Nicola Benedetti and the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain.
We also have our very own Musician-In-Residence, Andy Gilbert, a successful artist, in his own right who coaches students in music and song writing, and mentors our incredible school choir, Vocalize, who have performed at Buckingham Palace and The Royal Albert Hall.
