Performing Arts

At Middleton International School, we aim to inspire students to develop a love of music and the performing arts while encouraging an increase in self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As students progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music and the performing arts and a growing sense of self-awareness.


The curriculum for music and the performing arts at Middleton International School, based on the UK National Curriculum for music and the performing arts, aims to ensure that all students:

  • Perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions
  • Develop an understanding that music and performance comes from great authors, composers, and musicians
  • Sing and to use their voices to create and compose music on their own and with others
  • Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated
  • Have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument both tuned and untuned
  • Develop an understanding of pitch, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
  • Learn to project their voices in a performance
  • Use imagination to perform ad lib and to begin to write performances


Give your child a well-rounded education that responds to his or her interest.
