Music at Bromsgrove
Music at Bromsgrove is vibrant and inclusive. Each pupil is aided by a team of specialist teachers to find their own musical journey through an imaginative and stimulating curriculum, with the option of learning an instrument from the earliest opportunity and by participating in a wide range of extracurricular musical activities. Our aim is to provide something for everyone: all types of musical endeavour are encouraged.
Curriculum Music and Extracurricular Music together form the basis of an integrated, practical and engaging approach to musical learning at BIST, encouraging and developing four Strands of Musical Learning: performing, creating, listening and notation. All students from Reception through to Year 9 receive specialist Music lessons as part of their timetabled learning, with a number of students going on to study Music and Music Technology at GCSE and A Level.
Bromsgrove is an ambassador school for both Charanga International School and Musical Futures International. Charanga International School is a living cloud-based resource that brings together great music, modern pedagogy and the latest educational technology. The material presents an integrated approach to music where all Strands of Musical learning are linked. Musical Futures is based on a pedagogy that is driven by the musical culture of the participants, bringing real-world approaches to learning music into schools and other formal settings, engaging and inspiring all and promoting inclusion and diversity.
Extracurricular Music is designed to support and extend existing musical learning at BIST. All students across Primary and Secondary can sing in a choir, play in an orchestra, form a rock band or even learn a new instrument. Our school productions also benefit from extracurricular support and provide a fantastic opportunity for our students to combine their music, dance and drama skills.
