In Years 7 & 8, students have 1 lesson per week and alternate between doing a practical unit and a technology-based unit meaning they have access to the music technology for half of the year. The other half will be singing or using instruments and the whole curriculum focuses on the three main areas of music: listening, performing and composing.
In Year 9 there are two lessons a week for the students who opt to study music.
At Key Stage 4 we offer both Edexcel BTEC First Award in Music and AQA GCSE Music.
At Key Stage 5 we deliver Edexcel Advanced Level Music Technology in two parts: As in Year 12 and A2 in Year 13.
Our Year 12 Advanced Level students (AS) have six lessons per week and the Year 13 students (A2) have five.
