Welcome to Music

Welcome to the Music Department. The ethos of the department is centred around learning knowledge and skills in a practical way where students support and encourage each other to achieve their best.

In Key Stage 3 (years 7,8 and 9) we aim to deliver a broad experience of music which exceed the expectations of the National Curriculum to develop skills in three key areas:
