Music at Broadgreen is an integral subject for pupils to express themselves creatively. This subject encourages children to experience music, enriching individual lives and school wider community, through weekly Singing Assemblies, music lessons, after school clubs, key stage performances and opportunities to learn instruments through Resonate Music Hub.
