In Year 9, students can choose Music from a list of subjects as their enrichment option for two hours a week.
Students are given more opportunity to develop their instrumental skills and to specialise on instruments of their choice. Lessons will largely focus on performing and composing but with some time devoted to music theory to prepare students for GCSE Music.
- World music
- Music in the media
- Popular music and composition
- Whole class performance-instrumental development
- Group performances and solos
Students are required to perform in both Key Stage 4 concerts, bringing together students studying Music from Years 9 up to 11. These concerts happen in November and again in February/March.
Students are given the opportunity to participate in our extra-curricular activities, which occur weekly. Instrumentalists can join the Senior Concert Band. Students who don’t play an instrument are welcome to join the Pop Choir, Samba Band and Rock Band. Furthermore, the music department welcomes students to play on the keyboards before/after school, break and lunchtimes. The students are also allowed to book practice rooms after school to further develop their solo/group performance skills.
