Aims:

The music department at Our Lady’s operates on a carousel alongside Art and Drama, with classes receiving two half terms of music throughout the year, five lessons a fortnight. Lessons are available to all pupils in KS3 as part of their curriculum, with the option to take either GCSE (AQA) or BTEC Music Level 2 at KS4. The department also offers free instrumental music lessons which are provided by specialist visiting tutors. Pupils receive a 20 minute group lesson each week on their chosen instrument. Instruments are available to borrow to aide home practice and practice rooms are available during lunch time and after school to allow pupils to practice at school.
