Performing Arts is mainly delivered through the subjects of Dance and Drama, alongside projects that allow the subjects to be explored simultaneously. Pupils are encouraged to try and explore everything, with the emphasis on pupils taking part and trying their best so that they feel happy and safe within the subject area, allowing them to find the freedom to fully involve themselves and develop subject specific skills.
Alongside subject based skills, Performing Arts is an excellent opportunity for pupils to build their self- esteem, improve communication, develop social and team building skills, improve their ability to problem solve and increase resilience.
Within Performing Arts pupils are provided with the opportunity to present their work to an audience, with pupils keen to show what they have learnt and also gain recognition for all of their hard work. Performances take place in a local theatre during the Autumn as part of the Shakespeare Schools Foundation.
