Through the Arts, our children learn how to express the imaginative, creative and individual aspects of their character and we inspire our pupils to explore new experiences, nurture their talents and help them to fulfil their potential.
Through our well-planned, progressive skills-based Art curriculum, children learn new techniques and consider why people create Art, why it is important and explore ideas and concepts both old and new. They learn to work successfully in different media and we encourage them to find pleasure in their growing skills, and help them to respond sensitively to the world they see, while learning to evaluate and critically discuss their own work. We often link Art projects to other subjects such as History and Religious Studies as this collaborative and cross-curricular approach engages and stimulates learning.
Music plays a fundamental, vibrant and influential role in our school culture. We have opportunities for children of all abilities to become involved through access to modern music technology, individual instrumental and singing lessons. Through music confidence grows and our children gain the rewards of dedication and self-discipline. Pupils participate in a variety of choirs, orchestras, ensembles and bands, and perform in external competitions, European choir tours and local events.
Drama provides our pupils with a conduit to express themselves, build confidence and develop their own interpretation of movement, mime, singing and acting. We provide opportunities for them to participate in clubs and performances throughout the year and drama blends particularly well with English where we explore creative writing and plays.
