The Performing Arts department aims to inspire students by providing a range of experiences to enable students to fully connect with performance in both drama and music. The department seeks to develop a creative and disciplined approach to the study of the arts, through a combination of practical and written activities. Students gain a knowledge and understanding of both subjects as an art form, as well as developing skills in leadership, communication, time management, organisation, creativity and self-discipline; skills which will benefit them for future career development. Students have the opportunity to develop their skills as individuals and collaboratively with their peers to create excellent performances. The department prides itself on creating a safe and friendly learning environment with a positive energy to promote creative thinking and give rich feedback to its learners. Students are able to thrive and develop as confident and articulate performers.
There is a broad spectrum of co-curricular opportunities for students to develop their passion for the arts in a multitude of different ways such as our annual school musical, the SKAMPS Live Event, performing arts events, drama club, dance club, North Somerset dance festival opportunities and choir enrichment.
