Les Quennevais Music department is a busy hive of activity. We have 2 main teaching rooms that incorporate a new Mac suite, practise rooms and band rehearsal areas.
During lesson times pupils follow a very practical curriculum based around the Musical Futures approach to learning. In Years 8 and 9 pupils rehearse and perform in pop/rock groups, and this culminates in the annual Battle of the Bands competition, which is one of the high points of the school calendar. All pupils also will use music technology to sequence and compose music of their own. Those who go on to take GCSE Music have a good grounding in rehearsal skills and independent learning.
Extra Curricular Music
Extra-curricular music includes our very popular Steel Bands. These rehearse after school and can be heard playing at functions around the Island in the Summer time.
