The   Convent   is   now the first state funded school in the country to become  a Steinway School.  A group of our finest musicians  together  with staff attended a workshop  at the prestigious Steinway Studios near to Bond Street in July where we were met by the world famous concert pianist Philip Fowke. We were  treated to an amazing performance  of well- known  music played  by Philip as he shared his expertise in how to select a concert grand piano,  what  to look and listen for,  how it should  sound  and which piano would be the most suitable  for our school.  After much  deliberation  and careful consideration we voted on Piano number 3. Philip thought this  was  an excellent  choice! The piano was then purchased by our very generous Governing Body and is now situated in its new  home  in our school  hall.
