Music- Miss Paterson 2021 - 2022

Miss Paterson


There are many musical and talented students across both Lower and Upper School here at Newfield.  We have a busy music department with lots of extra-curricular activities taking place throughout the year to support learning and personal development. Recently Mr. Douglas and Mr. Lancashire’s class took part in the annual project at SPACE and have enjoyed composing and recording their own song in the studio. Well done everyone, we are all looking forward to the performance later this term.



This half term, pupils in Years 3, 4, 5 are extending their ukulele playing and are working towards a Discover or Explore Arts Award in Music.

Year 6 pupils are working towards the Entry Level 2 Explore Arts Award in Music.  This is involving them experiencing and taking part in a range of performing and composition activities this term. 

Year 7 are working towards the Bronze Level 1 Arts Award in Music and are currently learning to play keyboard solo and as a small ensemble.

Year 8 are working towards the Bronze Arts Award in Music and are focusing on music technology to compose and remix music.

Year 9 students have been focusing on music technology and keyboard skills.

Year 10 music students are studying the GCSE Music course.  They have been working on developing their practical skills in performance and composition, and revising the elements of music through studying unfamiliar music.

Year 11 music students are working on completing the final elements of their KS4 courses, working on either the Level 2 Silver Arts Award in Music and/or the GCSE Music course. 


Students across upper and lower school can take instrumental lessons in addition to learning keyboard, drums/percussion and singing in class.  Some of our older children are also studying a second instrument.  Currently we have additional piano, guitar, drums and singing lessons available.  Should you require advice on purchasing or loaning an instrument please make contact with school.
