Marshland High School


What the Music department may lack in size and space it certainly makes up for in enthusiasm, drive, and enjoyment. The music team consistently strive to make the music curriculum accessible, engaging, and relatable to all our pupils. The department includes a team of dedicated peripatetic instrumental teachers who each play their own role in further enriching pupils’ experiences of music, whilst enhancing their skills and building confidence on specific instruments.
