Curriculum Enhancement

Having contributed to the achievement of Artsmark Gold, we endeavour to provide opportunities for our students to gain greater confidence through extra curricular performance. 

♣Drama clubs for KS3 students are held during lunch and after school to raise student interest and achievement.  Some are focused particularly on the Gifted and talented. This year we are also introducing a dance club.

♣During Artsmonth, students in KS3, 4 and 5 are encouraged to attend special workshops and prepare pieces for performance.

♣KS3 students with the help of our year 10s traditionally manage an interactive drama evening with children from our local primary feeder schools.

♣Our Year 12s traditionally prepare and perform a piece for their GCSE certificate evening.

We usually end the year with a whole school production, which might take on the form of a musical or play.   We see this as an opportunity for our enthusiastic students in KS3, 4 7 5 to showcase their work.
