The ethos of Grace Academy Darlaston’s Music Department centres around the belief that every student must have the opportunity to get involved in and enjoy music education through performing, composing, appraising and listening at a level appropriate to their ability. To enable students to realise their full musical potential, the department aims to provide a broad and exciting curriculum with regular enrichment activities.

In addition, the department has an open door policy allowing students the opportunity to set up their own band, musical ensemble or composing club. Students can expect to participate in practical music making during every timetabled lesson with frequent performance opportunities in and outside of school.

Grace Academy Darlaston Music Department strongly considers music to be an essential and enjoyable part of today’s curriculum, equipping pupils with skills that are relevant both to everyday life and every other curriculum subject.
