Greenshaw High School


The music department at Greenshaw has three simple aims: to facilitate the learning of a variety of different musical styles from all over the world via meaningful engagement in practical music-making, to celebrate the diverse talents of all our students, and to make music fun.

Students have the opportunity to take part in many extra-curricular activities including choir, ukulele band, a small instrumental mix band and School of Rock. The music department collaborates with other creative arts departments on concerts and whole-school productions, in addition to creating other performance opportunities in and out of school.

The department has recently been accredited with the Music Mark (The UK Association for Music Education that collaborates with ABRSM). Sutton Music Service nominated the department for membership in recognition of the work we do to ensure that our students are able to access and engage with a high-quality music education.
