Our comprehensive suite of Performing Arts, Expressive Arts, Dance and Drama qualifications create confident and critical performers.
The Performing Arts specification offers students the chance to explore performance disciplines such as Dance together with design and technical matters including lighting, marketing and management. It promotes student choice, allows for different creative approaches and develops independent learning skills.
Students and teachers enjoy our Expressive Arts specification because it offers students the opportunity to explore, develop and create work in a range of art forms including moving images, music, original writing and visual arts. It also allows students to develop as confident and effective learners.
Expressive Arts can be taken as a single discipline arts option or can be taken in addition to other arts subjects and provides a solid grounding for further study of the arts at A-level.
Students and teachers enjoy our Dance qualifications because they enable students to combine their creative and academic abilities. Practical work is linked with the study of practitioners and dance works to create a fulfilling and enjoyable course.
The study of Dance contributes to students' social development and, as a physical activity, promotes fitness and well-being. As performers, students develop confidence and self-esteem as well as team working and creative skills. Both Dance specifications offer a clear route of progression. GCSE Dance is a highly practical course which creates a foundation for A-level. At A-level students continue with practical and creative assignments while refining their critical thinking and extended writing skills.
