Colfe's School has a thriving music department consisting of two full time staff and a team of twenty peripatetic staff. Instrumental tuition is available to both prep and senior school pupils on most orchestral instruments as well as voice, organ, guitar and drum-kit. Scholarships and bursaries are available for entrants into years 7 and 12.
The music department has a wide range of ensembles including two choirs, orchestra, three string ensembles catering for different abilities, Brass, woodwind and gutar ensembles and smaller chamber music groups which offer a wide range of musical experiences for pupils of all age and ability. Recent concert venues include St. Alfege's Church, Greenwich and Southwark Cathedral where the school held its 350 year anniversary concert.
The department moved into new purpose built accommodation in January 2003 which provides outstanding facilities for teaching. It comprises two class teaching rooms, a music technology room, six practice rooms and recital hall.
