Study & Expressive And Performing Arts

   

Within the Expressive & Performing Arts Faculty, we encourage students to showcase their skills and talents through a wide range of activities. Performance, composition and appraisal-based tasks allow students to develop confidence and social skills needed to be successful within the arts.

We pride ourselves on the wide variety of creative areas students can access through both classroom-based activities and the many extra-curricular opportunities available across the four subjects.

Some of our past adventures have included: Rock Challenge, workshops with The National Jazz Youth Orchestra, the painting of our stunning Sitting with Jane book bench and Go Rhino. As well as our annual Carol concerts, Chamber concerts, Drama & Dance showcases and Art exhibitions.
