“The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.”
Performing Arts is a compulsory subject for KS3 and is currently taught once a week in a double lesson for Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9 consisting of a combination of Dance, Music and Drama units of work.
Pupils in Year 10 and Year 11 study the BTEC Tech Award in Performing Arts; this is taught across three lessons per week at Year 10 and four lessons per week at Year 11. Performing Arts is also taught at Primary level once a week to all year groups.
Our pupils will be critical thinkers who are able to actively discuss performance pieces, provide constructive feedback to peers and formulate decisions whilst demonstrating an awareness of other peoples’ views and opinions.
They will be able to demonstrate a range of physical, interpretative, rhythmic and harmonic skills in relation to Dance, Drama or Music and apply these to the rehearsal process as well as performance.
