In Music, students cover performing, composing, listening and appraising skills.  Performing and composing will contain elements of both vocal and instrumental work where appropriate and initial rhythm, notation and performance skills are built on from year to year. Listening will contain reference to both Western and World Music and pieces composed in the classroom will be appraised regularly by the students and the teacher.  There are many other opportunities to perform at academy concerts and at key whole academy events. There are also a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities available to all our students.

Students will be assessed on technique, pitch, rhythm, composition, listening and performance through the following schemes of work:

Autumn Term 1: The Orchestra

Autumn Term 2: Performance

Spring Term: Calypso

Summer Term: The Beatles

Students will be given an interim assessment and final assessment within each unit to show progress within these styles of music.
