Our Performing Arts department includes Dance, Drama and Music.
We offer a wide range of enrichment so that all students have the chance to express themselves and grow in confidence. Every student in Year 8 works towards achieving their Bronze Arts Award in lessons. The school has been awarded the Gold Arts Award for the third consecutive time for our commitment to Arts Education.
Across the school other subjects benefit from the skills brought by studying the Arts. Each year we have Artists in residence working with our students.
We hold regular events throughout the year to celebrate success and showcase our Arts subjects. House Competitions in the Arts as well as productions are all regular features on our calendar. The students regularly participate in competitions and events including the Shakespeare Festival and the Police Drama project. Every year we host our own Dance Platform – Breakout at Arlington Arts. We hold an annual whole school Dance Festival which showcases the talents of every student in Key Stage 3. Trinity Sessions is the opportunity for our student bands to put on a concert and our musical showcase evenings including our Musician of the Year Award event to celebrate musical talent.
There are many other opportunities to get involved in other extra curricular activities that take place throughout the year.
