The Purcell School keyboard department is well-known for nurturing the very best young talent, including two of the three most recent BBC Young Musician of the Year winners, Lara Melda (2010) and Martin James Bartlett (2014); Teo Gheorghiu, the youngest ever recipient of the Beethoven-Ring (2010); Alexander Ullman, winner of the Liszt International Piano Competition (2011), and Alim Beisembayev, winner of the inaugural Junior Cliburn piano competition (2015). Many alumni have enjoyed national or international success. Very recently, alumnus Yevgeny Sudbin has been nominated for Gramophone Artist of the Year 2016.
In 2016, the school was made a Fazioli Pianoforti Centre of Excellence.
