We believe it is important to nurture the creativity, passion and individuality of each child at BWA. Music is integral to the broad and comprehensive education we offer and we provide pupils with the opportunity to express themselves in a multitude of ways. We follow the National Curriculum for music.
Pupils take part in a fantastic range of activities within the creative curriculum, from whole class lessons taught by a specialist teacher, to individual music lessons and clubs. These music lessons enhance the pupils’ understanding of the world around them and also broaden their experiences of music from a different time and place.
Individual music lessons are available on a wide range of instruments and many pupils take up the opportunity to develop their skills and musical understanding. A small group of highly qualified peripatetic teachers offer lessons throughout the week and we always encourage parents to share their aspirations for the musical offer we provide.
Throughout the year, the pupils are given many opportunities to perform, whether it be as a whole school during singing assembly; during a production; as part of a class performance; or as a soloist in a special music assembly.
