Music is an important part of the curriculum at Borrowdale School. We believe that enjoyment and participation in musical based activities develop pupil’s abilities to listen carefully, to make judgements about musical quality and develop their own independent thinking skills. Learning music increases self discipline, aesthetic sensitivity and eventually fulfilment. Within school, our curricular provision is enhanced and extended by the use of visiting musicians and musical groups from our local community and beyond. Weekly singing takes place beyond the time allocated for this subject within the school curriculum at times of festivals, presentations and performances.
