The Performing Arts faculty offers opportunities for personal development in a wide range of areas: the opportunity to develop self-confidence working with others; the opportunity to present oneself effectively in front of others and to appreciate the presentation of others in a respectful way; the opportunity to be creative and explore and develop skills with the voice, the body and instrumentally. We aim to develop skilful individuals who are capable of being creative in exploring a range of topics, who can successfully create, develop and bring work to performance, and who have an understanding of the breadth of Performing Arts which is woven into society through music, theatre, film, tv and dance. This is achieved through a wide range of both curricular and extra-curricular provision.

Blended learning: All lessons are currently set on the Google Classroom for every class and include activities that students can access and complete at home using simple, free and readily available technologies, that they will already have been looked at within the context of lessons. In the event of whole classes or year groups not being in school, some lessons will also happen via Google Meet during the classes normal timetable time. These lessons will also be recorded and posted in the classroom so they can be watched at other times. It is really important that we know if students cannot regularly access the internet at home so alternatives can be sent home.
