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 currently offer the Edexcel BTEC First Award in Music and the BTEC Tech Award in Music Practice.
At Key Stage 5, we deliver Edexcel Level 3 BTEC National Subsidiary Diploma in Music Performance and we also offer the Edexcel Level 3 BTEC National Extended Certificate in Music Performance
