The music department teaches a broad and balanced curriculum encompassing all three aspects of music – performing, composing and appraising
Through our teaching we aim to excite, stimulate and challenge our students through regularly revised schemes of work which are adapted to suit the needs and ability of all of our students.
Peripatetic music staff are available to teach a variety of orchestral instruments and non-orchestral instruments such as guitar, keyboards and drums.
