Head of Department - Mr. R. Radley
All pupils study music in Years 7 – 9 and can opt to continue to GCSE in Years 10 and 11. There is also an A level course in Music which runs in the Sixth Form.
Pupils learn about how music is put together, in their lessons, and spend a lot of time learning to play a variety of instruments (including keyboard, guitar and percussion). Pupils also experience composing music in groups and individually using computers. There are a wide range of extra-curricular activities (such as choirs, bands, percussion group and barbershop group) which pupils are encouraged to attend.
There is also the opportunity for pupils to learn an instrument from a specialist teacher through the instrumental tuition scheme. These one to one lessons are available on a variety of instruments including Brass, Woodwind, Violin, Viola, Piano, Guitar, Keyboard, Percussion and Singing.
