We believe that students deserve a broad and ambitious music curriculum, rich in skills and knowledge, which ignites curiosity and prepares them well for future learning or employment. Through our music curriculum will give students the opportunity to develop a thorough understanding of music, through performing, composing listening, and analyzing.

Students will engage with a diverse range of music from different cultures and time periods.  Through this, they will develop self-confidence and a sense of achievement through performance, through lessons, whole year group singing, and extra-curricular participation

Our music curriculum is designed to encourage creativity through composition skills and allows students to investigate, analyze and evaluate music and its features through analysis of a wide range of genres from different musical and cultural perspectives.

Students will have the opportunity to develop their collaborative working and personal development through ensemble performances and group compositions.

Students at Prendergast school will be able to understand how music can support the development of life skills, such as confidence, self-awareness, critical thinking, perseverance, and discipline, and provide a holistic experience that they can take beyond their musical studies.

Our music curriculum provides opportunities for students to develop their cross-curricular skills of problem-solving, perseverance, diligence, teamwork, time management, organization, responsibility, and cultural history.
