Department information

The music curriculum offered at Tudor Grange Academy Worcester is inspiring, challenging and fully inclusive; we are supportive, proactive and dedicated to ensuring that every child fulfils their musical potential. Music is a popular subject at our school; we currently have 100 students studying GCSE Music (Eduqas), as well a sixth form offering of A Level Music and RockSchool.

We offer an extensive extracurricular programme, including several choirs, bands and an orchestra. Students are given numerous performance opportunities throughout the academic year at regular music concerts, as well as being invited on music tours and trips. We have a team of ten peripatetic teachers who offer a range of instrumental and vocal tuition to our students, and have a variety of instruments we can provide for students who wish to begin these lessons.  We are also lucky to have a private benefactor who financially supports music.

Within our new-build school the Music department has dedicated specialist teaching spaces.  Each classroom has an i-desk, an integrated sound system and class sets of keyboards and ukuleles, as well as, a selection of percussion instruments.  We also have a dedicated Mac suite, plus a further three practice rooms. In addition we have a purpose built recording studio, live room and a 250 seat theatre with Yamaha grand piano. 

All schemes of work are fully resourced in centralised electronic folders, with a shared commitment to delivering clear objectives in each half term for each year group. We work collaboratively with the ten other schools within the Tudor Grange Trust to share expertise, resources and opportunities. 

Across the broader Performing Arts we work closely with the drama department to produce two shows each year, recent performances include Hairspray, We Will Rock You and Our House.  We also run the Arts Award programme between Music, Art and Drama.

Our outstanding Lead Teacher of Music here in Worcester is Kate Harper, who also oversees secondary and primary music education for the wider Trust. You can contact Kate via kharper@worcs.tgacademy.org.uk if you would like further information or would like to arrange a visit.
