Performing Arts

Welcome to the Performing Arts homepage. Here you can find information regarding the issues and topics taught at Years 7, 8 and 9, as well as details about our GCSE and BTEC courses that you can study at Key Stage 4. In Performing Art we have an extensive enrichment programme delivered where there is an activity for all ages and abilities to get involved with.

The Performing Arts department place huge emphasis on challenging pupils to achieve excellence in the fields of drama, music and dance. We strive to offer all students the opportunity to develop their confidence, communication and teamwork skills, in addition to expanding their knowledge and experience on the stage. This promotes a positive ethos for learning and school life which learners take and share in other areas of the curriculum.
