The present Music School building came in being in 1939-41. It was designed in part by Sir Hugh Casson, who in later years became an architect of some celebrity. There are three entrances to the building, including a delightful covered walkway erected in 1963, neighbouring the College Chapel.

The ground floor Concert Room, a charming space for small concerts, rehearsals, or teaching, is virtually the only surviving part of the original Music School building of 1879. Adorned with pictures from the College’s art collection, the Concert Room includes a piano, and has a capacity of 60 persons in theatre layout, 40 persons for a teaching session.

The Lewis Room, a teaching / rehearsal room with piano on the first floor, is named in memory of Sir Anthony Lewis, a former Wellington College pupil who went on to become the Principal of the Royal Academy of Music. Decorated with framed designs for opera costumes by Kenneth Green, former art teacher at Wellington and later professional artist and stage designer, the space provides a special environment for musical pursuits.

The Music School building also includes 10 small practice rooms on the ground floor, each with an upright piano.

Depending on the size of your event, there are numerous other spaces onsite for use as teaching and practice rooms and of course for larger scale rehearsals and performances.
