Performing Arts

In Music, key stage 3 pupils concentrate on building confidence and creative capacity to develop their own ideas effectively so as to lead them to success should they choose to study GCSE Music. The GCSE course begins with skills building and culminates in the pupils developing and recording two contrasting original compositions, performing both solo and as part of an ensemble, and the demonstration of knowledge in a written examination.

In Drama, key stage 3 pupils develop skills in group work, leadership and confidence. This is effective in raising self esteem and self awareness as the pupils mature into young adults and builds the foundation for creative performers at GCSE level. The GCSE course begins with acting workshops to develop technique and understanding of practitioners and conventions. The pupils are assessed through performance, written evaluation and creative exploration of ideas.
