Secondary School Provision

Offer to Schools 2024-25

Nottingham Music Hub works with secondary schools, colleges and academies across Nottingham City, offering a range of music making opportunities from small group ensembles to music technology, as well as city-wide competitions and events that offer young people a chance to showcase their talent and learn from talented professionals.

Music making has far-reaching benefits for young people, improving their confidence, social skills, motivation to learn, engagement with school and more. These benefits are more pronounced the longer young people continue with their music making.

The transition from primary to secondary school is crucial to young people's development and ability to succeed in and out of school. Many pupils tend to give up music at this juncture, which can be avoided with the help of music hubs working with secondary schools and providing inspirational opportunities for pupils to continue their musical progression.

Our Music Teaching Provision available to secondary schools is outlined below.
