In Music we focus on people: their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Every task or project within the department expects students to consider their own thoughts or responses or consider other people’s thoughts in relation to different situations.
This can take the form of lessons or extra-curricular activities within lessons, or can involve projects outside of the classroom including outside workshops, visits or external master-classes. We encourage young people to explore, consider, analyse and create ideas of how to improve themselves both in and beyond lessons.
