Priory Woods School & Arts College A Special Place to Learn

P16 Music

Participation in the Music curriculum at Post 16 provides opportunities for developing a broader awareness of the arts. This is accessed through educational and motivating activities: exploring individual musicians, places of musical importance, Tess Valley Music service, Live Music Now and participation in workshops. The music programme will identify suitable accreditation units to meet the needs of individual students. Peer feedback and self assessment on a regular basis will be used to develop confidence and interest for work. Students will develop independence and self esteem through choice in relation to music and cross curricular projects.

During the programme students develop the following Cross-curricular, Personal, Learning and Thinking skills:

  • Independent enquiry
  • Self-management
  • Reflective learning
  • Effective participation
  • Creative thinking
  • Team working
  • Applying English, maths and ICT relevant to research and development of ideas.
