Curriculum Intent

‘Without music, life would be a mistake.’ Friedrich Nietzsche

Mrs A Dixon
Curriculum Leader Expressive Arts

Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high-quality music education should engage and inspire students to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.


Our music curriculum aims to ensure that all students perform, listen to and evaluate music across a range of different genres and styles and traditions. As students are taught to perform practically on a wide range of instruments, they progress to improvise and compose, use notation in a range of musical styles and traditions whilst having a deep awareness of and using the dimensions of music. 


We develop students’ spirituality through the use of music for liturgy, contributing to whole school Masses and events.
