Welcome to the MUSIC Department
Music has a great and very meaningful educational value. Countless studies have charted the positive effect music lessons can have on student’s personal, social and academic progress. The music department aims to deliver on these findings through a fun, practical and immersive musical experience. Music is a subject that should be enjoyed regardless of personal taste and preference; through the curriculum at KS3 we cover a diverse range of genres, styles and cultures with a view to expanding the musical horizons of our students. At both GCSE and ALevel, exam courses are designed to hone more academic skills whilst helping students develop their musical prowess through performance and composition projects.
Integral to this approach is a busy timetable of instrumental and voice lessons, extra curricular activities, performance opportunities, trips to see concerts and a biennial concert tour abroad to perform to audiences across Europe.
