Access Keys:

St Colman's High & Sixth Form College, Ballynahinch



Music at St.Colman’s is studied throughout years 8 ~ 10 (Key Stage 3) for one hour per week, being delivered by Head of Department Mrs Michelle Haughian. 

At St.Colman’s we aim to build on our pupils’ previous musical experience, with a course in which all KS3 students are taught to read conventional music notation and ukulele chord tablature.  This enables them to perform on musical instruments, such as keyboards, ukuleles and tuned mallet percussion, including xylophone, glockenspiel and metallophone.

Our KS3 musical provision broadens pupils’ horizons and aims to give them the skills and knowledge they need to discover new styles and pursue the musical activities of their choosing.
