Our music department’s aim in secondary school is to extend students' musical interests and skills.

Music is a powerful, unique form of communication that can change the way students think, feel, and act. It brings together intellect and feeling and enables personal expression, reflection, and emotional development. Students perform and compose music in different styles, increasing their understanding of musical devices, processes, and contextual influences.

We follow the National Curriculum and prepare students for their Cambridge International Examinations. Students progress through one hour of curriculum music per week, advancing through integrated units that are imaginative and challenging.
