This is the music department website for King Edward VI College in Stourbridge. As one of the largest A level music providers in the West Midlands, we attract talented musicians from Stourbridge, Dudley, Worcester, Bromsgrove, Sandwell, Kidderminster, Wolverhampton, Birmingham and beyond. We achieve excellent results and our students go on to the top universities and music colleges.
