The Music Department aims to develop students’ musical understanding and enjoyment of music by actively engaging with music. A wide range of enrichment activities are available, and we encourage students to take a musically active part in the life of the school.
These topics need to be covered to give students the opportunity to perform in groups and as individuals as well as to learn about musical history and genres. The order these topics are taught in will help develop their skills through Key Stage 3 to give them choices at Key Stage 4 – particularly if they already play an instrument/sing.
Students will be exposed to as many different composers and styles of music as possible throughout Key Stage 3 to widen their appreciation of music and inspire them to listen to music they may not have heard before
Music has many transferable skills; teamwork, independent work, creativity, presenting skills, time management – for rehearsal, ICT skills, awareness of other cultures.
