The study of music engages and inspires pupils to develop a love of music and nurture their talent as musicians. This in turn helps to increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement, so that pupils eventually develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, perform, listen and appraise. Music is taught at Key Stage 3, as part of the Music and Drama carousel.

Internal assessments take place every half-term.
Playing a musical instrument has huge benefits. It is good for academic progress, improving concentration and organisational skills, and developing self‐esteem, confidence and social skills. The Academy offers a wide range of peripatetic music lessons and pupils have the opportunity to play a variety of instruments, both during and after school. The Academy also has a choir, and pupils have the opportunity to perform for both their peers and the public.
