Expressive Arts

The Expressive Arts curriculum aims to inspire students to embrace a love of learning as well as to obtain skills and knowledge to make them experts in the subjects of Art & Design, Ceramics, Drama, Music and Textiles. All Arts subjects are taught separately and by specialists. Declarative and procedural knowledge is required in practical subjects and this is continually reviewed, modelled and scaffolded throughout our curriculum. We teach a robust and varied curriculum, which enables all to access, achieve and become masters, finding their niche within the Arts.
