The school provides highly specialised tuition in stringed instruments and the piano for about sixty boys and girls aged between 8 and 18 years. The Menuhin Hall is a new purpose-built, 316-seat concert hall designed with a 'supportive acoustic' for the highly gifted young musicians of the school as well as professional performances and recordings. It was completed on time and on budget and has received several awards.

If I were asked what has been the school’s greatest moment over the last twenty one years, I would have to answer - the opening of the The Menuhin Hall with Slava Rostropovich conducting the school orchestra. At last the school has a performing space worthy of an institution with an international reputation, and what a change this has brought to levels of performance.
