MUSIC

 

Notice for stopping an instrument.

If pupils wish to stop lessons at the end of this term, we must receive notice by Friday 7th May. Please email dcpsmusic@deanclose.org.uk  If we do not receive notice, music lessons will continue in September for pupils who currently learn.

Music lessons for pupils transferring to the Senior School.

Pupils moving from Year 8 to the Senior School at the end of the year must also give notice if they choose to, as music tuition will automatically continue unless notice is given. Further information from the Senior School Music Department is being sent to parents this week.

Year 7 and Year 8 Exams

The Year 7 exams will be held from 24th-28 May and the Year 8 exams from the 7th-11th June.

This will be the first set of exams these pupils have taken in two years and with the disruption they have experienced to their education, we are very keen that this experience be useful to them in learning skills for future exams. We are also keen that the experience does not pile further stresses on what has been a difficult period for us all.

With this in mind, Heads of Department are putting together revision materials for the Year 7 pupils to use in their Independent Study Times over the next three weeks. These materials will replace their usual prep work and will help the children remind themselves of their work this year, as well as helping them to develop their independent study skills. The Year 8 pupils already have much of their revision, so below is a reminder for them of where to obtain it.

Please see below for a brief summary of where your child can access material in each subject area. Pupils can access the revision site here: DCPS Revision
