Music Teaching delivered by a music specialist. The children are taught following the principles of the Kodaly method, in which they have the opportunity to learn the principles of rhythm and pitch through a variety of engaging activities.

We are proud of our Drama department! Drama is offered in KS3 and forms an integral part of the rich expressive arts curriculum. Our students explore all the aspects of acting, performance, lighting, sounds and production. Every year our main focus is on blocking, body language, facial expressions through different genres of theatre. Every year sees a major production. Last year 'Frankenstein' was staged and scared everyone!
