Curriculum aim

The Music curriculum in our school will help students to develop a passion for a great subject and help them develop practical skills that will extend way beyond the classroom into adult life. Activities within this highly-structured course will build musical skills and knowledge which will lead to students performing in front of others.

Key stage 3 Curriculum overview

At KS3 students will be taught the fundamentals of the subject. You will be taught how to read Music if you do not already know.
