The Arts

The Arts (2).JPGThe Performing Arts allow our girls to give expression to their innate creative talents while developing confidence, perseverance and teamwork. Music, dance, speech and drama are popular activities and there are many opportunities for students to become fully engaged.

In addition to these activities a Performing Arts Academy operates after school for both junior and senior students. Improvisation, devising, mime, musical theatre, movement and drama skills are taught over the course of the year in a group situation. The aim of the programme is for all the girls to perform at school throughout the year, as often as is practical.

In order to excel in the Arts it is important that students are afforded an opportunity to perform in a supportive environment. Every year there is a key event in which all students participate. In some years there is a school musical show featuring dance, drama and music, or there is a Soirée where the focus is strictly on music performance, or there may be a Creative Arts Evening where music, drama, dance and the visual arts feature. Such events which involve the whole school community bring a sense of belonging as we all work together to produce a night of excitement and colour.
