We follow the Edexcel GCSE course in Music. The GCSE course builds on a number of the skills that have already been developed during previous years:
- Pupils choose two topics for composition. The style/genre of these are tailored to each student’s own musical interests and strengths.
- Pupils study 12 set pieces from the classical, 20th century, popular and world music Areas of Study.
- Pupils perform as a soloist and also as part of an ensemble. Pupils should be able to offer at least one instrument/or voice in order to take GCSE Music, although there is also a music technology route through the exam.
