Our aim is to provide all students with the opportunity to access Music by exploring a variety of musical experiences including playing an instrument, exploring music technology, experiencing a variety of genres, accessing extra-curriculum groups and instrumental lessons.
We offer a variety of activities and excursions focused on music to expand our pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the subject further.
Activities in school include:
- Year 11 Gig
- Battle of the Bands
- Extra-curricular clubs such as choir, sign choir, jazz band, KS3 rock band, and music club, and open mic
Trips and events include:
- Music For Youth regional and fringe festivals
- Performances at local festivals
- Touring local primary schools
- Collaboration events with QEGS and Tattershall Primary School
The Music curriculum underlines the intention of incorporating music performance, composition and technology as much as possible. Progression is encouraged through the development of different skills and techniques which results in students becoming more confident and taking ownership of their work. All students have access to music and personalised learning strategies are in place to ensure all are able to achieve.
The curriculum on offer reflects the ongoing changes in the music industry through performance, composition and music technology. The KS3 curriculum reflects these changes through practical experience, feeding directly into the KS4 BTEC curriculum.
