Music is currently being taught to Years 7, 8 and 9 classes as part of the core curriculum. Students may opt for extra music lessons in year 9, which enables them to get a taste for BTEC Music, offered as an option in years 10 and 11. Pupils decide at the end of Year 9 whether they wish to take BTEC music.
BTEC Music is a level 2 qualification. Students, over 2 years, work very hard to be awarded with a Pass, Merit, Distinction or Distinction* after they have completed 75% coursework and 25% external, written exam.
Music is taught one lesson per week for KS3 and 3 lessons per week for KS4 by Miss Race, Subject Leader for Music.
