The Arts – Music and Drama

Inspiring the development of creativity.

All students have the opportunity to step into a world of visual and performance arts and develop their confidence in creative self-expression.

Students develop their practical, problem solving and analytical skills through all our Arts, whilst having the opportunity to experiment and take risks in our extensive and varied programmes. Our Arts are delivered within our Academic Curriculum, as well as within our House system and Co-curricular programmes, providing an all-inclusive education.
