The Arts

'Bringing out the creative potential within each child'


Regular lessons for our youngest in Little Chicks lay the foundations for an exciting programme of drama throughout the school.  Interactive drama lessons are great fun and develop the children’s confidence which is so important for their development in all areas of school life. Individual tuition for LAMDA exams is available and the children preform to the highest standards which is reflected in outstanding LAMDA Drama results.Our productions include:

Lower School - Kindergarten and Reception perform a traditional Nativity, and Year 1&2 perform a Nativity musical in the Autumn Term

Upper School - Year 3&4 have a Music and Drama showcase in the Spring Term. Year 5&6 have an annual musical production in the Summer Term. Previous productions have included Sweeny Todd and Oliver and are of an exceptional standard. 


Music is embedded in the school's history and enjoyed by the whole community. Our instrumental ensembles ensure the children have the opportunity to enjoy playing their chosen instruments and performing as part of a group and our many choirs ensure everyone has a chance to sing as part of a group.


Art is taught by an enthusiastic, specialist teacher who brings out the creative potential within each child. Treated as both a syllabus subject and as part of the wider learning experience, art is enhanced through trips to galleries and exhibitions.
