Performing Arts

Year 7 Performing Arts

The intention of Performing Arts is to provide students with both social and academic skills that they can take through with them into any walk of life. These skills will also provide students with the knowledge they need to be able to take a GCSE/BTEC route in either Drama, Dance or Performing Arts. Students will study a wide range of Drama and Dance units that will help them to gain some specialist knowledge in both of these areas.

Year 8 Performing Arts

The aim of this year is to consolidate knowledge that has been gathered in Year 7 and further develop this in preparation for GCSEs in Drama, Dance or Performing Arts. Students will study a range of Dance and Drama focused units underpinned by theoretical knowledge the whole way through.
