We Love The Arts!
Drama is quite simply engrained in every aspect of life at Chinthurst. From weekly Drama lessons which start in Little Chicks to the polished performances in the senior production, your child will develop the sort of confidence that will set them apart from the crowd. They can take individual one to one LAMDA lessons (our children achieve outstanding results in LAMDA exams) or perform in one of the many productions throughout the year. All the world really is a stage at Chinthurst – in preparation for life's 'stage' and all it has to offer.
Our well-equipped Art classroom is a wonderful place to visit! Mrs Lyth, our specialist Art teacher, takes a practical approach to Art and the children experience a wide variety of techniques allowing them to explore their creative potential. The walls and ceilings proudly display their fantastic work and visitors often comment on the high standard and diversity of the artwork. Over a hundred children recently produced a stunning installation for an international art competition and were delighted to be prize winners, collecting an award and displaying their creation at the Natural History Museum in London.
Music is an important part of life at Chinthurst. The whole school sings together at assemblies and three choirs regularly rehearse and perform to a high standard at outside events and competitions. Every year group benefits from specialist music teaching within the curriculum which develops the children’s musical abilities and gives them an enthusiasm to learn. There is a strong instrumental programme and visiting teachers provide over a hundred one to one lessons a week on a wide variety of instruments.
The children have many opportunities to showcase their musical talents at school performances throughout the year.
