Creativity is often born through discovery; therefore, pupils are provided with broad range of inspirational experiences which allow them to explore their own creative strengths, talents and interests. Students are given the opportunity to express themselves creatively through independent learning, practical application, teamwork and reflection. We also prepare our students for the future by addressing issues relevant to their personal, social and moral development. Sequential tasks building on past achievement assures that every pupil is confident that they will achieve something. Confidence builds achievement and students are aware of personal and individual goals. In addition to our broad curriculum, we also offer an extensive Enrichment Programme which challenges students and gives them an opportunity to experience life in the Creative Industry.

We currently offer BTEC Performing Arts as well as RSL Acting. We decide upon which course we take based on which we feel the cohort will best suit.
