About the department:

In the music department, our vision is that:

– Music will play an important role in the wider school environment, and all pupils will have the opportunity to participate in musical performances;
– Pupils will develop a lifelong love and appreciation of music, enabling them to participate in music making.
– Students in Years 7, 8 and 9 will develop the musical skills and knowledge required to appreciate the study of music.

We achieve this by developing a KS3 curriculum which develops pupils performance and composition skills, and their musical knowledge, while giving pupils the opportunity to explore their own musical tastes and interests.

In addition to their weekly music lesson, pupils are encouraged to participate in Stepney Green’s instrumental scheme, where they have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument free of charge.
