“Music is the great uniter, an incredible force, something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common” Sarah Dessen
Article 31. Every child has the right to join in a wide range of cultural and artistic activities.
Our curriculum aims to challenge and inspire students to make excellent progress throughout the Performing Arts department. Through knowledgeable and motivating teaching, students will learn a variety of skills that build on subject specific knowledge from year to year and give students aspirational goals for the future through our BTEC components. Through Music, Dance and Drama BTEC courses, it is our intention that students will take charge of their own learning at KS4 giving them an opportunity to explore the world around them through the practical application of a wide range of styles, and the study of practitioners; as well as to partake in practical group work and research tasks that focus on the development of performance skills and techniques.
To enable students to make excellent progress, we aim to do this by introducing students to a range of different styles and techniques throughout each discipline, and by building confidence through both group work and independent application.
The curriculum in KS3 Music is associated with building skills. The range of classes taught, mean that the curriculum gives students the overall practical knowledge of the conventions of music and build on this art form from year to year. Students at this key stage will learn group work, concentration, confidence and communication through the exploration of different genres, styles and performances. Music lessons are additionally beginning to form cross-curricular links which allow students to draw on previous learning and embed new terminology learnt.
