Art/Drama/Music/Performing arts

Our vision for the Art/Drama/Music and Performing Arts curriculum

 

The aim of the Creative and expressive arts curriculum

  • The aim of the arts curriculum is to foster and hone students’ passions for their art with open minds in order to enjoy engaging with the arts throughout life.  
  • Students will learn to confidently explore and investigate how practitioners and artists create and make visual images, music and performances to enable them to extend and develop their own work in a progressive visual world where the arts are becoming increasingly relevant. 
  • They will learn how to apply these processes to their own creative work and progressively deepen their knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the arts. 
  • Students will develop a range of subject-specific skills, language  and techniques; they will learn how to compose, create, perform, devise and experience all areas of the arts in an imaginative, engaging and creative way. 
  • The curriculum will be delivered through regular and structured opportunities to reflect and evaluate their own and others’ work across a range of cultures and content in order to appreciate and critique the arts in a global setting.
