Head of Subject: Mr J. Felton
A new topic is explored every half term. Students develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of the three main musical disciplines (performing, composing and appraising) in all of these topics. We are extremely lucky to possess a huge variety of musical resources (instrumental and technological) in the delivery of these topics.
It is the aim that any student may continue their musical education beyond Year 8 if they desire. Learning an instrument outside of curriculum time is NOT a prerequisite for opting for GCSE music or BTEC Level 2 music technology.
Music is one of the few activities that activates, stimulates and uses the entire brain!
