We aim to give students a positive experience of Music with a varied and practical approach to the study of the subject. Students are challenged to progress and develop their musical skills through performing, composing, listening and appraising.
Key Stage 3
The Key Stage 3 curriculum enables students to develop a range of desirable personal qualities and skills such as perseverance, concentration, initiative, confidence, individual and group sensitivity. Students have the opportunity to learn a number of instruments such as keyboard, guitar and drums. The KS3 curriculum combines listening, appraising, performance, composition and music technology to engage students from the very first lesson and to lay a solid foundation for those students who may wish to study Music at a higher level.
Key Stage 4
At Key Stage 4, our students are following a course written by Rock School Ltd. There is a big focus on students improving from whatever starting point they have, be it through solo or ensemble performances, which are recorded throughout the course on any instrument and in a style set by a task.
Our Music department contributes to the college’s diverse programme of extracurricular activities by providing comprehensive extracurricular provision, during the lunch hour and after college.
