Which subjects are in our faculty?

  • Music
  • Art
  • Drama

What do we do?

We encourage all students to develop a love of music and drama through performance in class, in concerts and in shows. Students are supported in exploring new ways of expressing themselves.

In art we equip our students with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.

We also teach our students to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of music, drama and art.

They will also learn how music, drama and art reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

All students study music, art and drama (within the English curriculum) at key stage 3 and have the option to study music, art and drama at GCSE level when they begin key stage 4.

In our supportive environment, our older students mentor our younger ones, giving them a sense of achievement and pride in how far they have come in their artistic journey.
