gcse historyAt Bridgnorth Endowed school, our mission is to engage the pupils in a broad musical curriculum, through both theory and practical activities, allowing for all avenues of music to be explored, while maintaining and developing the learners’ musical understanding and skills.


The music curriculum at Bridgnorth Endowed school is designed to help further develop pupils’ skills, understanding and knowledge in the subject, through practical engagement in inspiring projects and activities, designed to spark and nurture the pupils’ interest and curiosity.

The topics throughout the music curriculum will also foster pupils’ transferable and employability skills, allowing them to further develop creativity, independent learning, teamwork, time management skills, communication skills and confidence.

The music we study, allows exposure to a variety of cultures related to different musical styles, composers, and performers from various different places and eras. Every pupil will have the opportunity to explore these areas of music through composing, appraising, and performing.
