It is our expectation that students who follow the GCSE music programme will focus the
majority of their home learning on individual instrumental practice. In year 11 this will be
primarily focussed on pieces for the AO1 performing element which equates to 30% of the
overall GCSE grade.
Additional home learning will be set to further embed theoretical concepts or to explore the
life and work of a composer being studied in class.
Students will typically have a week to complete this, depending on the task.
Students who fail to complete the homework by the following lesson will be given an
opportunity to hand the homework in the following morning. Failure to do so will result in a
departmental catch-up where the homework will be completed.
Students who complete homework to an exceptional standard will be rewarded via the school
