In the Music Department we aim to provide the opportunity for all students to investigate the musical world around them. We set out to enrich the lives of our students by developing their appreciation of the language of Music and by allowing them to express themselves, creatively through musical composition and performance.
Key Stage 3
The KS3 course provides students with the opportunity to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding through the integration of performing, composing and listening.
In Year 7, students study how music can be broken down into individual elements. They perform in groups and individually, learning how to listen and react to the sounds around them.
In Year 8, students further develop their instrumental skills through a number of workshops, using both the keyboards and guitars.
