Key Stages and Curriculum Maps
We are committed to equality and diversity and continue to work towards a fully inclusive curriculum.
Throughout Key Stage 3 students build on both practical and theoretical knowledge of music from around the World and through time. Year 7 has topics from song writing based on the legends of Dartmoor through to studying Gamelan Music from Indonesia. Year 8 look at rhythm in more detail and study world music such as reggae and steel pans and in year 9 students enter into the world of Baroque music, minimalism, electronic music and more. All of these topics are designed to prepare students to take a GCSE in the subject.
At Key Stage 4 students currently follow the AQA GCSE Music course. The core content includes performing, composing and listening and appraising music. There are 4 areas of study; The Western classical tradition (1650 – 1910), Popular music, Traditional music and the Western classical tradition since 1910.
