We have designed our curriculum using the KS3 National Curriculum and it is delivered under the framework of the IB Middle Years programme. We have also referenced the KS2 Programmes of Study in our initial planning.

With music permeating so many areas of our recreational lives, the Musical Department as Mascalls Academy see the educational provision of Music as an essential ingredient to students’ learning. Music lessons are designed to be as inclusive as possible to cater for every student, no matter what their starting point is, and so that progress and challenge is appropriate and robust.

Through studying Music, students will listen to a broad curriculum of genres and styles gaining confidence in how to apply their critical faculties; they will also rehearse and perform in every lesson to build on their knowledge of practical skills, their problem-solving and their resilience. Creative thinking is promoted and explored in every lesson with authentic engagement and enthusiasm.
