 Performing Arts



All pupils receive a weekly lesson of Performing Arts throughout KS3. The focus throughout the three years is to acquire and develop skills in all types and genres of music through:

  • Listening

  • Performing

  • Composing   

  • Appraising  


The principal aim of the department is to develop and enhance every pupil’s enjoyment of music. Furthermore, to ensure that the musical potential of every child is fulfilled through practical, engaging activities both in and out of the classroom. Our music department aims to be a welcoming and nurturing environment for all pupils to be able to explore their musical interests and talents in a supportive atmosphere. Pupils have access to a wide range of classroom percussion instruments as well as keyboards and ukuleles.

Music is an important part of school life in Drumglass High School. Pupils from all year groups can take part in a wide variety of extra-curricular activities as well as performance opportunities. These include:

  • Choir

  • Prize day

  • Carol singing

  • Carols by Candlelight

Instrumental lessons are offered by tutors from the EA music service and through private tutors. Currently we offer lessons from the following tutors
