Creative and Performing Arts 1 

The Arts Faculty consists of Art, Music and Drama and there are very close links with Media and Dance. All staff working within the arts have experience of working within the creative arts industry, providing excellent background knowledge of their specialism as well as education.

As a team we believe, in an increasingly accessible global culture, our arts provision prepares young people with a rich appreciation of their world and their responsibilities through an awareness of cultural diversity and a celebration of creative work from cultural heritage through to contemporary practice. Through the development of specialist skills in Art, Music, Drama, Dance and Media we enable our students to communicate their ideas openly, creatively and intelligently.

Pupils and the wider community benefit from purpose built accommodation with facilities that enable highly specialist work to take place. Projects explore aesthetics and each department recognises and celebrates the interdependent relationship between the arts.

We are committed to encouraging leadership, team work, independence, effective participation, creative and critical thinking, reflection and self-management within the arts through facilitating partnerships and practical projects that impact directly upon the lives of others in the school community and beyond.  The over-riding aim of the creative arts is to foster a sense of curiosity, interest and enjoyment, of pride and ownership through the celebration of individual and collective creative endeavour.
