Barrowcliff School

'Learning Together Growing Together'

Welcome to the Barrowcliff School website. We are proud to be an Ofsted GOOD school.


We promote enjoyment and a love of music through performance and through listening. We follow the Charanga Musical School scheme of work which follows the National Curriculum for Music, and use a range of musical instruments.


Clubs and choirs further extend opportunities for children while performances out of school help strengthen links with the local community.


Purpose of Study

'Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon'.
