The Music Department, in accordance with our school values, ensures that kindness, resilience and respect underpins everything that we do. By developing pupils' skills through a combination of Singing, Listening, Composing, Performing and Theory strands, we aim to provide opportunities for everyone and enable success within a happy, positive and safe environment.
It is our intention that;
We make music an inspiring, exciting and enjoyable learning experience which develops our pupils’ musical skills and life skills.
Our pupils gain a firm understanding of what music is through singing, listening, evaluating, composing and performing.

Weekly whole-school singing in assembly.
Encouraging pupils to participate in our weekly choir practise.
