Music Mark has become the home for Musical Bridges, the website launched by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation in 2010.
Musical Bridges enables teachers to work together to give pupils a smoother transition from primary to secondary school, and provides a framework for joined up teaching and learning. It helps to support pupils’ musical learning when they move to secondary school AND helps primary and secondary schools to work together to improve transition generally.
