Music is a universal language that speaks to all. It can bring meaning and enrichment to learning in other subject areas and is a medium for celebration, a way of nurturing school identity and ethos, and a means of reaching out to the local community and beyond. At Foxfield School pupils develop a range of skills and knowledge that allows all our pupils to experience and explore sound and instruments and create their own music.
Pupils develop understanding of the interrelated dimensions of music: tonality, dynamics, tempo and pitch, through performing and creating their own compositions. In listening activities, they learn to make informed value judgements and decisions about music from a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians.
At Foxfield School pupils will study Music in both Key Stage 3 and 4, and have the option for further creative activities in Post 16.
