Great article about the power of music to improve school results

An inspiring article in the Guardian about a primary school in Bradford using music to help turn around a failing school, with spectacular results.

The focus on creativity has improved results across the school, not just among the musically gifted, say the head teacher, adding that it is “demonstrably more effective than drilling Sats papers”.

“My hope is that headteachers and people holding purse strings, possibly even the people who make important decisions in the government, will read about our school and realise that creative subjects are not mere add-ons but essential for the progress of all pupils.”
