Staff and Facilities

There are three full time music teachers at Claremont. The department also employs highly skilled instrumental teachers from Brent Music Service which is located on site. The music department currently offers instrumental lessons on a very wide range of instruments.

The department has three classrooms, each of which is fully equipped with keyboards. We also use djembe drums, ukuleles and a samba kit as part of our curriculum lessons. The school is fortunate to have a music computer suite and a recording studio which allows students to compose and record their compositions using state of the art technology. 

 

Programme of Study

All students in Years 7 and 8 are taught music in their form groups. In Year 9, music becomes one of the school's early option choices, where lessons are delivered to smaller sized classes. Pupils are able to continue to study Music at GCSE and at A Level.
