Building on from the foundations built in the Junior school, the Senior Performing Arts department continues with the ethos that every student has the talent and scope to achieve extraordinary things.
Performing Arts lessons take place weekly in the senior school timetable and students have the opportunity to develop core skills in Music, Drama and Dance. Senior students experience aspects of theatre production including filming, directing and producing scenes, choreographing their own dances and composing their own music scores. The curriculum is designed to expose students to a mature and extensive training programme that will equip them for study at GCSE level as well as prepare for potential scholarship applications and study in later life. It also harnesses essential skills in confidence, vocal projection and collaboration.
The senior school hosts a performance piece in the Spring Term that takes place in a professional theatre. Students audition for parts and work collaboratively with their peers to design bespoke sets, costume and lighting plots.
