Music is a unique form of communication that can change the way pupils feel, think and act. Music forms part of an individual's identity and positive interaction with music can develop pupils' competence as learners and increase their self-esteem. Music brings together intellect and feeling and enables personal expression, reflection and emotional development. As an integral part of culture, past and present, music helps pupils understand themselves, relate to others and develop their cultural understanding, forging important links between home, school and the wider world.

The department will begin teaching the new EDEXCEL A level course in 2016. This course helps students to develop skills in performing, composing and listening. We study a great variety of music, particularly from the Western Classical Traditions and from jazz and popular music. There is considerable freedom in performing and composing to explore and choose your own repertoire and styles to work in.

The course is challenging but thoroughly prepares students for university and is accepted as an academic A level by all universities and colleges.
