The KS3 Music experience focuses on inspiring students to recognise that Music can equip them with the skills to participate effectively in original work they can be proud of. With creativity at its heart, the course aims to encourage students own individuality through a variety of styles and stimuli in line with the requirements of the GCSE course.

GCSE Music offers students the opportunity to explore Music as a practical art form in which ideas and meaning are communicated to an audience through choices of form, style and convention. Students will compose, perform and listen to music making clear responses informed by their theoretical knowledge of Music and the industry. The subject content details the knowledge, understanding and skills that students are expected to develop throughout the course of study.

The core aim of the curriculum is to develop independent, creative thinkers who can work collaboratively preparing them for exams and their future after RVHS.
