Course Details

Our aim is to provide an excellent education for all our students. We aim to bring out the best in everyone and develop a range of skills to support and prepare students for a successful future.

Within the Expressive Performing Arts department, we aim to deliver a high quality of education, engaging all students which allows students to learn and develop new skills. We are very proud to offer our students a full curriculum within the arts to GCSE level in Dance, Drama and Music. We strive to ensure that students use our subjects to fulfil opportunities within the arts and beyond. Our subjects help to prepare students for future careers by developing skills in presenting, problem solving, working with peers, team leading, resilience, ambition and confidence, resulting in well-rounded individuals that can contribute positively to society.

Our curriculum is designed to promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness and emotional intelligence.  We promote and nurture British Values and mutual respect within our lessons. This includes respecting peers for their different ideas and beliefs as well as looking at different cultural art forms and tragic events. 

Our curriculum focuses on allowing students to be free with their creativity and giving confidence to try new experiences. Standing up in front of peers, staff and audience members. Building self-confidence, professionalism and discipline. Our aim is to provide students with numerous opportunities for positive success and physical activities helping to increase student mental and physical wellbeing, promoting health lifestyles for all students. Education with character is at the forefront of what we provide for our students. Our co-curricular clubs and activities include: school productions, Christmas concerts, KS3 and KS4 performance, dance shows, trips to the theatre and in school workshops.
