Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.


The Music department aims to promote Music both within the classroom, the school and the wider community.  We aspire to create an environment that encourages curiosity, interest and a love of learning music, which stimulates and develops an appreciation and enjoyment through performance, composition and listening.  It is important that all students have equal opportunity to develop their particular talent, which should then lead on to experiencing success and enjoyment in the subject.   

Insturmental lessons are provided by Eniefld Music Service.  Please see their website for more information.

GCSE students will compose and perform regularly. Here at St. Anne's students follow the AQA GCSE music specification, studying four different areas of study. These include: 

  • Western classical tradition 1650 - 1910

  • Popular Music

  • Traditional Music

  • Western classical tradition since 1910

Students must be able to listen attentively to unfamiliar music from all four areas of study to identify and accurately describe musical elements, musical contexts and use musical language (including staff notation).
