The vision for every student is that they exceed what they thought was possible. We want students to be inspired, excited and engaged in music. In KS3 students touch upon a vast array of styles and genres focusing on three key skills of performance, composition and listening.
 In year 7. They learn  instrumental projects building skills and theory along the way through percussion, keyboards, ukulele and singingThey develop music for video games and also look at music from around the world.
 
 Year 8 builds on the skills through classical music, Blues Music, African music and composing film music.
In KS4 (9-11) students study AQA GCSE music where they perform a solo and group piece of music, compose a piece of music to a brief and to their own brief.
 
In addition to GCSE music, BTEC level 2 in Music is offered. Students learn about the music industry and how to become a professional musician.
