The Performing Arts curriculum aims to challenge and inspire students to make excellent progress throughout the Performing Arts department. Through knowledgeable and motivating teaching, students will learn a variety of skills that build on subject specific knowledge from year to year and give students aspirational goals for the future through our BTEC components. Through Music, Dance and Drama BTEC courses, it is our intention that students will take charge of their own learning at KS4 giving them an opportunity to explore the world around them through the practical application of a wide range of styles, and the study of practitioners; as well as to partake in practical group work and research tasks that focus on the development of performance skills and techniques. It is through these means that we aim for students to have a sound range of knowledge and skills that will equip them for success in their further education.
